Big Idea: True Shepherds Lead from the Front so that they might see the danger first and then take action to protect the sheep.
While we as men may want to be sheep at times, we are also called to be a shepherd of our families and our relationships. While many of us are more comfortable being sheep, we have the honor and responsibility to lead well and to protect those in our care. “No one can enter a strong man’s house without first tying him up”. Mark 3:27. This of course is concerns protecting those whom God has given to us. When we allow ourselves to be overcome in our spiritual lives, those in our care are then put at risk. Let’s lead from the front and protect those God has entrusted to us.
What is your natural response to danger as a shepherd to those you love? Does it need to be modified so your focus is protecting your loved ones? How?
