John 10:11 (Pt. 3)  Thought/Prayer:  Qualities of Shepherds.  Topics:  2 at end.

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep:.” DARBY http://www.bible.com  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)   

If we see ourselves as a form of “shepherd,” when it comes to doing pro-life work, how would it work?  We have no claim in any way to be as Jesus was, the Good Shepherd.  But is it possible for us to be lesser shepherds of those who need us to help them choose LIFE?  Yes, this can happen.

Shepherds lead the sheep.  They choose the pathways to take.  They watch over them even through long nights without sleep.  If we are to lead those struggling with decisions about abortion, euthanasia, or potential disabilities forming in the womb, perhaps we could see ourselves as shepherds who are informed and wise. 

Shepherds must know the terrain, must know about the habits of sheep, and must be prepared to face the enemy (wolves, coyotes, and mountain lions).  We must keep up with the “lay of the land” toward LIFE issues; we must know and keep current about the issues and choices toward LIFE; and we must prepare ourselves for an onslaught of enemies (the wolves of worldly knowledge) (the coyotes of conflict among causes) (and the mountain lions of media bias).     

Being a shepherd is not just appearing on a slope of grass with a few sheep and sitting back and watching grass disappear into hungry mouths.  It’s being prepared and being alert.  It’s being integrated into everything those sheep are doing and will do.  We must prepare as though every family with potential problem pregnancies (or maybe the pregnancy is the problem) are about to be lost on the mountainside.  The urgency of this will keep us alert and involved.

Lord, help us to not want to be absentee shepherds in our hearts.  Help us to totally get “into” everything we need to do and be, to shepherd girls, women, fathers, and families into Your fold, the fold of LIFE.  Lord, help us to not be slack in this.  Zepheniah 3:16 – “In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear not; Zion, let not thy hands be slack.” (DARBY)

Topics:  Pray for understanding of what it takes to be leaders and caretakers of those in pregnancy crises, and then help us to act.
