**NO MARKINGS**With shepherds as founders of their very nation (Genesis 46:32), the bond between sheep and shepherd is one that God s people would readily understand. Therefore, it is little wonder that, throughout Scripture, He uses it to describe His relationship to His people . . . The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. Isaiah 40:11 Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd doth his flock. Jeremiah 31:10 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. Luke 2:8 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd . . . Mark 6:34 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. John 10:11 In fact, the only picture God paints of Himself more often than that of Shepherd is that of Father. Therefore, it is my prayer that He will use the following portions of His Word to keep you walking day by day in the footsteps of His flock, and as His kids, constantly feeding close beside your Shepherd.
Condition: Very Good.
