Every child needs to know that God loves them and that He cares for them like a shepherd.
“He will feed his flock like a shepherd.
He will carry the lambs in his arms,
holding them close to his heart.
He will gently lead the mother sheep with their young..” (Isaiah 40:11 )
God is our heavenly Father and our shepherd. When the dangers and difficulties of life come our way, our shepherd is there to pick us up and to protect us. Who wouldn’t want to be held in God’s arms and have Him love on us.
If you have a pet, sit down with y0ur children and your pet and talk about how they care for their pet and how they love on it. Ask how they would feel if their pet was sick or lost? Remind them that God is our good shepherd who feels the same way about us and cares for us.
Thank God that He is our shepherd. Spend some time with your eyes closed and imagine what it is like to be in the arms of the good shepherd.
