May 12, 2019 – Thoughts by Rev Kev

On this Mother’s Day and as we continue to celebrate our Easter Season we are given the description of the Good Shepherd.

Reflecting on this Easter Story and this celebration for all Mothers I find the qualities of both to be similar. Take a moment and think about all of the things a Mother does and compare it to the work of a Shepherd!

● The Good Shepherd is concerned about all of the sheep entrusted to his care and not about his own self!
● The Good Shepherd will make sure the sheep are safe and protected.
● The Good Shepherd will only rest when all of his sheep are together.

●The Sheep truly know the voice and even the smell of the Shepherd and find comfort in hearing the voice
and aware of his presence even in the silence of the night. Likewise the Good Shepherd knows the sounds/
voices of his sheep.

May we take a moment to pray in Thanksgiving for all of the Mothers in our lives, and as we continue to rejoice in this Easter may we find comfort in the love and protection of that Good Shepherd Jesus Christ.
