Selfless Love

It felt so apt that Good Shepherd Sunday which we just celebrated coincided with Mother’s Day. Mothers will always be associated with selfless love….but so is the Good Shepherd who lays down his life for His sheep.

We learn that a Shepherd herds his flock, safeguards it, brings it to safe and green pastures, guides it and shelters it. His primary duty is the safety and welfare of his flock. Beyond doubt are mothers are shepherdesses, for their protection for their family is fierce and selfless.

Today as we go to elect in our national polls, can we exercise a little bit of our shepherding…?

Can we protect our country, its safety and welfare by voting wisely?

Can we do a little bit of loving for our country?
