Joseph then spoke to his brothers and his father’s family. “I’ll go and tell Pharaoh, ‘My brothers and my father’s family, all of whom lived in Canaan, have come to me. The men are shepherds; they’ve always made their living by raising livestock. And they’ve brought their flocks and herds with them, along with everything else they own.’ Genesis 4:31-32 (The Message)
Great reminder that the image of shepherd wasn’t pulled out of the air. The people of Israel would have been intimately acquainted with the image of shepherd, from their daily lives and from their history.
In our prayers: Mark Stanford, Susan Frisby, Sergio Geribon, Jr.
