What makes a great leader? Jesus is our Good Shepherd not merely because he exhibited good leadership skills, but because he looks down upon us with compassion and desires that we should flourish. He is the leader who lays down his life for his people, the leader who carries us back on his shoulders from the wilderness, the leader who protects us and guides us and brings us to green pastures. Give yourself over to his Lordship in every aspect of your life. Give yourself to the Good Shepherd.
