Jesus tells us, “I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know me.” God’s gift to us to be able to recognize God’s presence in our lives empowers us to make decisions aware that choosing mercy over judgment, love over selfishness, grace over punishment, others over self, and reconciliation over hatred all bear witness to God who loves us into loving others. No other creature on this planet has the choosing capacity God has given us.
