From a Creighton Student's Perspective
February 4, 2012
Today’s Gospel passage reminds us of our dependence on Jesus and the Word of God. When I see a passage like this with vast amounts of people following Jesus like sheep, as he describes them, it reminds me how I always keep coming back to him. During this time of my life when I’m trying to decide where my life is going and what it is I want to do with it, I sometimes find myself overwhelmed between all of my commitments. However, just like the large crowd, I find myself following Jesus seeking his grace for help and guidance in what I should do. And Jesus always takes pity on me, because he knows how I need his grace. And he is always willing to help me. He always gives me some kind of guidance; even if it is the slightest or smallest things I always find that guidance. It does not always manifest itself in a major way or in an immediate fashion, but he always gives me the help I need. He is our shepherd and we are his sheep, and as a good shepherd he does not abandon his flock.
