Feed My Sheep

Lovest thou me more than these?...He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. - John 21:15

Story Behind the Art:

Jesus gestures to the boy in a quiet moment of gentle teaching. I often wonder at the meaning behind Jesus’ plea to “Feed my lambs” and then, two times, to “Feed my sheep.” (John 21:15-17) For me, there is so much meaning within those simple statements, and so much responsibility given to those who hear and receive His words. To all of us, Jesus extends a softer plea to feed, to nourish, and to teach His lambs and His sheep--indeed, all of His children. - Jay Ward
