Day Sixteen Jesse Tree
December 16 is already here, and that means it's time for Jesse Tree Old Testament prophecies to New Testament promise ornament.
Day 16 Ornament - A lamb and a staff.
Day 16 Scriptures - Isaiah 40:11 - He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young;
Psalm 23:1 - The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want; and
John 10:27 - but you do not believe because you are not my sheep.
The group of scriptures portray Jesus as a good shepherd. He cares for those who love and follow Him like a shepherd cares for his flock of sheep. Sheep follow their shepherd knowing that he will protect them and provide for them in every circumstance. If we are believers in Jesus, we will follow him because his sheep know his voice.
I have always found that this Isaiah scripture is particularly uplifting and encouraging for mothers and fathers of young children as he promised to gently lead those who have young. It's almost as if He gives us an owners manual when we have young children to guide and instruct. He comes along side us and directs us how to lead them down the right path.
