"When he, the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth."
- John 16:13
Monday through Friday, business parking lots are always filled. On Saturday mornings, however, only one car is usually parked in front of each business - most likely the owner's car. Why? Because the business belongs to him. He wants to keep a close watch on the statistics, the cash flow, the deposits and the statements. He cares about it in a way his employees can never understand.
Jesus is a caring owner. We are his sheep, not someone else's, and he will walk miles to lead us to green pastures. Because he owns us and loves us, Jesus monitors every step we take. He knows every hurt we feel, every crushing disappointment we experience. We are precious to him, because he created us. He is in love with us, and he will do whatever it takes to keep us safe in his flock - he even laid down his life for our sakes. I'm grateful for a love like that.
