In Pastorates today, I've seen the rancher mentality and the shepherd mindset toward "the Sheep of His Pasture." Regrettably, both need the understanding conveyed by this book. Then hopefully both will find their proper place becoming more effective. After reading this short volume, you will approach your ministry differently or should, but either way, you'll have received the virtual experience of what King David, the shepherd knew.
An example of this is found in, “The Book of Legends/Sefer Ha-Aggadah: Legends from the Talmud and Midrash.” Here the Rabbis show us that Moses has undergone a transformation in the desert shepherding the flock of his father-in-law Jethro. Christians are also able to see in this story a foretelling of the Parable of the Good Shepherd. It’s a legend that goes like this: “`Now Moses was tending the flock’ (Ex. 3:1). The Holy One tested Moses by means of the flock, as our masters explained: When Moses our teacher was tending Jethro’s flock in the wilderness, a lamb scampered off, and Moses followed it, until it approached a shelter under a rock. As the lamb reached the shelter, it came upon a pool of water and stopped to drink. When Moses caught up with it, he said, “I did not know that you ran away because you were thirsty. Now you must be tired.” So he hoisted the lamb on his shoulder and started walking back with it. The Holy One then said: Because you showed such compassion in tending the flock of a mortal, as you live, you shall become shepherd of Israel, the flock that is Mine.”
Abraham, Amos, David and others were shepherds when the Lord called them as shepherds of the people. Good shepherds know how to lead us. They are ever-watchful over us and for things that can affect us. They protect us. They seek us out. The heal us. They anoint us. They raise us up when we are cast down. They feed us. They give us life-giving waters. They calm our fears. They give us trust. They are willing to lay down their lives for us. They defend us from our enemies. They make up for our shortcomings. They keep us on the straight and narrow. They call us by name.
What a great refresher to seeing how much God really loves us. You will never thing the same about God, shepherds or sheep again.
