Be Intentional, Not Accidental

No one can deny just how busy life can be. A spouse, children, job, friends or even a hobby can quickly fill up a day, often leaving little time for Jesus. Without really trying, we allow tasks and people to become more important than our treasured relationship with our Creator. How is it that we so often neglect the One who guides us perfectly, loves us unconditionally and promises never to neglect us?

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away ... I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me” (John 10:11-14).

Jesus promises to never leave us stranded, scared and alone when trouble comes our way. He consistently makes time for each and every one of us, lovingly tending to His flock. Take a moment to thank Him for always having your back. Praise Him for knowing your name and caring for you. Never forget to pursue Him as He pursues you.
