Evening: Psalms 107:1-32; John 6:52-59
Good shepherds give their lives to the well-being of the sheep. Jesus said he was the good shepherd, showing how much God loves us; Paul says nothing can come between God’s love and us. Now maybe it is a little confusing to hear Jesus talk about people consuming his flesh and blood? This is a powerful metaphor with a deeper meaning … if we take in all that God offers to us in Jesus (drink it in, chew it over) we will know that love is what matters most, and then, perhaps we will choose to live for love too.
