I once saw a film clip about a shepherd of today…
It showed an imposter calling the sheep to come his way.
But the sheep went on grazing, just as if they couldn’t hear.
Then their true shepherd called… His voice, to them, was clear.
It was amazing to watch them immediately flock to his side.
Likewise, we flock to our true Shepherd, protector, and guide.
At times, a voice that is dangerous will come to us in disguise.
But the voice of our Shepherd, Jesus, and His truths make us wise.
P. A. Oltrogge

“I am the good shepherd; and I know my sheep, and I am known by my own.” John 10:14 NKJV
