There are those in this world who dismiss the notion
of a heavenly Shepherd who guides with loving devotion.
They’ve decided, for themselves, that Jesus isn’t real.
Then Satan comes to them with his choices, making his appeal.
Later, when things go wrong, they try to say that God was to blame
and that thanking God for blessings is making a foolish claim.
Some do have belief in God but haven’t yet seen that Jesus is Lord.
A prayer for them is that they’ll see His Name cannot be ignored.
God’s mercies are over all; He gives rain for the just and the unjust.
Yet there’s only One— Jesus, who is the way, the truth, and the life—in whom we’re to trust.
When we turn to God for guidance, He gives the counsel that we request.
Let the Good Shepherd be your eternal Savior and, by His leading, now be blessed.
P. A. Oltrogge
