Today's first reading reminds us that what we need are shepherds after the Lord's heart.
I will appoint over you shepherds after my own heart,
who will shepherd you wisely and prudently.
Shepherds after the Lord's heart are focused on the Lord, not on human popularity.
Shepherds after the Lord's heart are servants of the Lord's truth, the Lord's grace, and the Lord's love.
These are the shepherds we should love
Each according to our own vocations, these are the shepherds we should be for others.
