We are like sheep and Jesus is our shepherd who keeps us safe.
Today, we’re going to talk about another parable. A parable is just a fancy word for a story. Jesus used parables to teach people important lessons. In this parable, Jesus wanted to teach the people that we are like sheep. He doesn’t mean that we look like sheep but that we act like sheep. Sheep are followers and they depend on a shepherd to lead them to safety. This is true for us, too. We will have people in our lives that want to lead us down the wrong path. This path leads to danger. But, Jesus came to lead us toward safety. He came to die for our sins to save us and he wants to lead us toward the life he has planned for us. So, we need to listen to Jesus, not those friends who are looking for trouble. So, kids, remember that Jesus is our good shepherd who takes care of us. Don’t be like a sheep who listens to the wrong voices. Follow and obey Jesus and you’ll have a safe and happy life.
