The Shepherd of Our Souls

Psalm 23:3,
"He restores my soul; He guides me on the paths of righteousness for His name's sake."
The Lord is our shepherd
Today I had an eye-opening fellowship. So let me explain my situation. I have been serving the Lord for a few years and regardless of how that looks like on the outside, in essence it's always about shepherding people. 

Throughout the years, I've been in the process of learning how to shepherd others. I'm learning to listen more, speak in a genuine way, offer practical help, be less rigid, more sympathetic, considerate, and the list continues. It's a true privilege to have this opportunity at my stage of life to labor with my fellow serving ones helping the young ones grow in the Lord.

It takes time to try shepherding someone's soul: to make them happy and warmed up. Of course, eventually the goal is to grant them spiritual nourishment not just to comfort them for the sake of comfort. Great learning, isn't it?
