Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Description: Jesus is our Good Shepherd. We are the sheep for whom he has laid down his life. This reflection for the 4th Sunday of Easter, using John 10:11-18, asks: In what areas of your life do you feel lost and alone or abandoned? Sometimes we forget to listen for our Shepherd’s voice. When the path of life takes us to dead ends or dangerous cliffs, it’s not because he’s abandoned us. The pain we feel is his shepherd’s staff tapping and prodding us to get us to move in a different direction, and we just haven’t understood.
Ideas for use: Bulletin insert for the 4th Sunday of Easter, Coming Home ministry, adult education, faith sharing groups, RCIA class, etc.
