The Art of Shepherding

  Technically a shepherd is a person who herds, tends, and guards sheep. One can safely say that the primary responsibility of a shepherd is the safety and welfare of his flock.

Our Messiah Yeshua refers to Himself in John 10:11 as the “Good Shepherd”, Who lays down His own life for His Sheep. Abel, son of Adam and Eve, was the first shepherd mentioned in Scripture (Genesis 4:2). Many of the great leaders in the Bible began their lives as shepherds. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Joshua, and King David all started out as shepherds. Psalm 77:21 praises HaShem, noting that, “You led Your people like a flock, by the hand of Moses and Aaron”.

Basically any person who leads anyone is a type of shepherd.
  Pastors and Rabbis are “shepherds” to their congregations. Elders are “shepherds” of the body of an assembly. Parents are “shepherds” over their children. Teachers are “shepherds” over their students. Employers are “shepherds” over their employees. Older children are often times “shepherds” over their younger siblings.
