Sheep cannot graze in the same pasture all year, unless it is
a small flock in a large, lush pasture. Sheep can overgraze,
eating until they consume all the grass, including the root. By
then erosion and hunger threaten their survival. A wise shepherd
moves his flock to the next...

Lord, come find us with your love when we can’t see our way. Amen.

Three of the texts use the image of shepherd and sheep. Psalm 23 and John 10 picture the familiar relationship of trust that sheep exhibit toward the shep- herd. The shepherd places himself between the dependent sheep and the aggressive enemy to ward off destruction and exploitation. John 10 and 1 Peter 2 introduce the costly price paid for protection. The sheep’s safety comes with immense and undeserved sacrifice. In 1 Peter 2, the shepherd’s sacrifice makes possible the return of wayward sheep who have wandered away from the shepherd’s protection.
