“An Ideal Far Beyond Yours”

This morning, I read in Hannah Whitall’s Smith’s, God is Enough, an interesting assignment for the soul.

She insists: “Realize to yourself what your ideal shepherd would be–all that you would require from anyone filling such a position of trust and responsibility–and then know that an ideal far beyond yours was in the mind of our Lord when He said, ‘I am the good shepherd’.”

What would I require of such a Shepherd? What would I want Him to do for me? After I make that list of every single thing that might signify I’m truly cared for, God exceeds this in ways that are “immeasurably more than I could ask or imagine.”

We are truly cared for, beyond all we could ask or imagine.
