Israel struggled with rulers who always seemed to care more about themselves then they did about their people. We struggle with the same reality today. Whether in politics, the church, or other places, we are so often disappointed by our leaders. We get our hopes up, only to realize that leaders far to often care more about themselves then they do about their people. God promises that his coming King will be a shepherd to his people. He will rescue them, care for them, protect them, and lead them in the way they should go. This shepherd will bring God’s people safely home to be live with Him one day. But surprisingly this shepherd is first rejected by his people and then struck down by God himself. Yet the shepherd refuses to abandon his people and shows his love for them by dying in their place.
