A few questions for the children (and adults) on yesterday’s story:

The Lord is my Shepherd

 Excerpt From: Susan Hunt. “Sammy and His Shepherd: Seeing Jesus in Psalm 23.”

“Jesus said: “I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me” (John 10:14).

“He calls his own sheep by name” (John 10:3).

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep” (John 10:11).

Something to talk about:

  • Why was Sammy a happy sheep?
  •  What does the name Samuel mean?
  • What are some things Sammy knew about his shepherd?
  • Was the sheep in the other pasture happy?
  • What did Sammy do to show kindness to the little sheep?
  • Who is our Good Shepherd?

Something to do:

Thank Jesus that He is your Shepherd and that He knows your name.

Or, if you don’t yet know Jesus – repent of your sin, and call upon Jesus to save you and be your shepherd.
