The Shepherd with staff is among the first images of God presented to us as children. It was a reassurance of God’s love, guidance and protection for us. The shepherd uses the staff to gently guide and reunite the sheep when they have strayed. God does not respond to our straying with disgust or disdain. We are guided back, not in shame, but in the realization of God’s abundant mercy and compassion. It may be difficult to embrace and feel worthy of such mercy and compassion, and at times we might even reject it; but God does not give up on us. God’s persistence is an expression of God’s love seeking our conversion. It is the experience of being the beloved of God and a reminder that even in our darkest moments, we can “be-loved” by God. How might I experience and express God’s mercy and compassion with those I encounter today?
