The Comforting Image of the Good Shepherd
The Good Shepherd is one of the most comforting and reassuring images of Jesus in the New Testament. The Good Shepherd knows his flock, and as they hear and recognize his voice, they follow him, knowing that he will seek out each sheep separated from the flock. The Good Shepherd Seeking the Lost Sheep Greeting Card can be sent to (or received from) your pastor (Latin for “shepherd”), member of the pastoral team, a bishop, or anyone who has been a “Good Shepherd” in your community. The image of the Good Shepherd provides comfort to those who feel lost, with the gentle reminder that God hears their voice and will always seek them out and protect them.
The Parable of the Lost Sheep – Luke 15:1-7
Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
