Thank God for His Good Shepherds

The heart of Jesus is so big. I experienced this during my recovery from ankle replacement surgery. The surgeon told me to elevate my foot for three months. After I got home, I can’t tell you how much it meant when someone stopped by to see how I was doing.

My staff was incredible, and many people texted and called. It lifted my spirits and made that long wait of three months so much easier.  I grew to appreciate that person’s presence means much more than anything they could do for you.

Jesus’ heart grew in my heart during each one of those visits, phone calls, cards, and texts. It made me aware that whatever the sacrifice, how I feel doesn’t matter when someone sick needs a visit. Whether or not I know them well, they are like sheep without a shepherd. 

Gospel Challenge:

Jesus said in today’s gospel, “The harvest is abundant, but the laborers are few.” Perhaps you know someone who needs a shepherd. You can make a huge difference in a person’s recovery.
