Shepherding Toward Jesus

David is described in the book of Ezekiel as the prince leading them to the King.  The role of the shepherd leader is to always point to the chief Shepherd, Jesus.  He is the ultimate aim in our…leading.  If we seek to lead others to a ministry, a philosophy, or style, we are not shepherds but wolves (Acts 20:28).  God entrusts the shepherd to lead the flock to the King, not to the prince. 
Scott Thomas & Tom Wood (Gospel Coach, p. 126)
