I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy. I will shepherd the flock with justice. Exekiel 34:16
To be a shepherd is to be a leader. It is an opportunity to help others. It is a calling not to personal gain and well being but to protect the flock. It is the joy of knowing that through your actions the flock has been preserved.
