An interesting comment that Jesus made that should catch the attention of every leader is this: “I know My sheep and My sheep know Me” (John 10:14). Jesus is telling us that He knows the uniqueness of every person.
Combine this with David’s encouraging words about Jesus as our Good Shepherd in the opening words of Psalm 23, “The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need” (Psalm 23:1 NLT).
This tells me that quality shepherd leaders…
- …are around their teammates enough to know them personally.
- …can quickly ascertain when their teammates are feeling stress or anxiety.
- …know how to give their teammates what they need to destress in a healthy way.
