“I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me” (John 10:14). 

Long considered dim-witted, recent research indicates that sheep are quite intelligent animals—recognizing people and even responding when you call their name. Perhaps Jesus had insight to the characteristics of sheep that modern researchers are only now discovering. Our destiny doesn’t have to be a mindless following of the crowded flock, but we are fully capable of being called out and responding to the voice of the One who desires to lead us to pastures we have never before known or imagined.
