A Sheep's Tail

by Fr. Jack McArdle with Aneel Aranha

I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me (John 10:14)

Abraham Lincoln pointed to a sheep one time, and asked someone who was talking to him.

"Supposing that sheep's tail was a leg, how many legs would it have?"

"Five legs," came the instant reply.

"No!" replied Lincoln. "Pretending that a tail is a leg doesn't make it a leg, so the sheep would still only have four legs!"

Do you truly believe who Jesus is who he said he is? When he tells us that he is the Good Shepherd, do we believe that we are actually members of his flock, who follow him, and for whom he takes total responsibility?
