Modern-day Shepherds

The 23rd Psalm is a favorite of many, yet I suspect it doesn’t communicate as well as it once did. After all, how many of us are familiar with shepherds or even see sheep? If told to picture sheep, I imagine five or six woolly, white sheep being chased by Shelties in a fenced pen. After all, that was the last time I saw sheep and I was just driving by.

Bill Lollar at The Edge of the Wedge ran across an image of a modern shepherd that didn’t meet his expectations. Bill suggests we don’t recognize modern-day spiritual shepherds because they don’t meet our expectations.

I have question: how many of us don’t “care for sheep” because we have an antiquated view of shepherds?

Or maybe we just don’t recognize that we’re the sheep.
