INTRODUCTION

     In these next scriptures, we at –VAL-TE’ believe signifies a trustworthy, and godly human being who looks after others when they are in times of need. ”I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.” John 10: 11-16 NKJV

Biblical Word

     SHEPHERD – 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. In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Immanuel himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.‘ Acts 20: 28, 35 NIV

Reference

     1 Peter 5: 1-4 – I, who am an elder myself, appeal to the church elders among you. I am a witness of Immanuel’s sufferings, and I will share in the glory that will be revealed. I appeal to you to be shepherds of the flock that God gave you and to take care of it willingly, as God wants you to, and not unwillingly. Do your work, not for mere pay, but from a real desire to serve. Do not try to rule over those who have been put in your care, but be examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will never lose its brightness. GNT

Significance

     Caregiver (My Brother’s Keeper) – We at VAL-TE’ also believe that caregiving is practiced by parents who raise their young children, friends who care for a disabled neighbor, and adult children who bring their elderly parents to live with them. As such, caregiving is absolutely biblical. Though the Bible never uses the word caregiving to describe selfless acts of love and mercy toward family members and friends, there is no doubt the Bible supports the giving of care. Leadership and Faith, “I am My Brother’s Keeper.”
