Dig In to the Bible
·       Read: Psalm 23:1; John 10:1-16
·       In This Passage: David begins a psalm about how God is like a shepherd. In John 10, Jesus also talks about how he is like our shepherd. As his sheep, we can follow our Shepherd because he guides us.

Dig Deeper
·       You’ll Be Teaching: God guides us. The Bible often uses sheep and shepherds as a metaphor for our relationship with God. While this was a very helpful and tangible comparison in Bible times, it may be lost on many of today’s kids, who may not be all that familiar with shepherds and sheep. Help kids think of sheep and shepherds like pets and people. Pet owners love, care for, and protect their pets.
·       Think About: In what ways has God shepherded you?

Dig In to Prayer
·       Ask God to help kids know and follow his will.
