‘Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock
of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers.
Be shepherds of the church of God,
which he bought with his own blood.’
David killed a lion and a bear to defend his sheep (1 Sam.17:34-36) and the Lord Jesus Christ willingly gave his life for his flock (Jn.10:11).
Our overseers are tasked, as shepherds, with providing spiritual, pastoral and loving support for God’s people.
We must pray that they continue to be given wisdom and strength to undertake this duty wholeheartedly, for the glory of God.
