Who is Guarding the Flock?
God had given Moses the role of leading his people Israel out of Egypt and to the Promised Land. Trained as a shepherd Moses understood this sacred trust to guard and shepherd God's flock. Following in the footsteps of his Lord, who would later offer his life for the people, Moses demonstrated godly love for those he served. Similarly, Jesus' demonstrated his love for his disciples, and he encouraged them to emulate his example of protecting those who were in their care. The love that Jesus spoke about was not mere emotion, but commitment to choosing and doing what God prefers, by the power of his spirit. Do our spiritual leaders demonstrate this kind of love?
