As shepherds we need to be fed by the Lord so we can feed the sheep.
1. As shepherds we can use the first reading for our examination of conscience.
2. Shepherds are not just priest but also parents, teachers, managers, etc.
3. How to be a good shepherd?
a. We need to be fed by the Lord by his love, words in scripture and grace.
b. We need to be in the state of grace so that we can be fruitful in shepherding others. Jn 15:5
c. We need to live in the truth so we can speak the truth to our sheep. We get lost and bring others with us when we don't live in the truth.
