Who Is YOUR Flock?

I love mornings like this. I have a favorite chair to sip coffee and dive into God’s Word while watching life go by out the back deck door. Recently, I’ve been spending time in 1st Peter. I came across this passage today and stopped:

At first glance, one might be tempted to think this applies only to your church Pastor, or your boss at work. But the more I read it, the more I realized that every single one of us has a “flock” under our care. It could be your family, it could be your co-workers, or it could be your neighbors. I thought of the members on my team at the television station. As the lead meteorologist, I set the tone. Yet, verse 3 goes on to say that I should lead by example and never by “lording it over people.” I’ve done it both ways and I can tell you that lording it over people makes things miserable for those you care for AND for yourself!

Stop and think today: Who is the flock entrusted to me by God? Let God’s love for your flock lead you in the way you care and serve them. It was a great reminder for me.

I’d love your thoughts. Feel free to leave me and my readers a comment below (the forum will be open for about a week).

Here’s praying that your weekend is full of joy and God’s favor.
