John 10: 11 “I am the good shepherd. A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
As a leader, or someone who strives to be an excellent employee, it is critical that we put first those we work for or with. I, for one, don’t always find this easy to do.
The work place can be very competitive and we often want to be first or “get out of my way.”
However, we know that God’s way is not our way. It is with humility and trust in putting Jesus before all else that we need to direct our attitude. In this way, we can all be good shepherds to those we encounter.
Come, Lord Jesus, help me to lead and guide Your sheep and help me to light the path of Your flock. I praise You for being my Good Shepherd.
Do you give up your personal desires to follow the Lord? What have you given up to follow Him?
