Sheep without a shepherd

RE Verse reading–Matthew 9:35-10:31 (day seven)  “When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd” (vs 36)  These are sobering words for me.  Having heard from the Lord early in my life, “if you love me, feed my sheep”, I am challenged to be what I need to be so that people can have what they need from God.  I am not be alone in this responsibility.  All of us have shepherding roles.  Parents to children.  Fathers to families.  Friends to friends.  Churches to cities.  Like it or not, we ARE our brother’s keepers.  If we love them, we will lead them to safe places.  May the Lord help us to see our opportunities.  May He send us to prayer and then out into this “ready harvest”.  People need a shepherd!  Our job is to point them to Him.  I will look for you in a few hours.   Don
