Who is your shepherd
The well being of a sheep, is reflective of the shepherd who is looking after the animals.
A shepherd who takes care of his sheep, will see them flourish, but one that doesn't, will see the sheep, desperate and dying.
A good shepherd, loves his flocks. Looking to provide the best for his charges. He ensures that the animals are well fed, well taken care of from predators, protects the animals from themselves, and from the weather and sickness. He seeks to make everything good for his animals, throughout the day.
The Lord chose us. We are a chosen peculiar people, picked up by God.
Not because of our background or understanding, or wealth. He makes no mistakes, and chooses us for a reason and a purpose. If we are not important to God, why would he give his best (Jesus) to pay the ultimate price for us.
We are important to God.
