Hook: When were you last taken advantage of by others? How does injustice make you feel like even God may not care?
Book: In His discourse on the Good Shepherd, Jesus compared himself to religious leaders who acted like thieves and hired hands, abusing people to get their own way. Unlike Jesus, they would hurt and destroy others to protect their position. A good leader will lay down his life for his sheep. The words and actions of Jesus overflowed with love and sacrifice for people. The selfishness of others should remind you to depend on the loyal care of Jesus.
Took: What do you enjoy most about the Good Shepherd’s care for you? Who needs you to care for them in the same way?
