Distractions abound today, there are so many options demanding our time and attention. If we grow careless, we can find ourselves pursuing the wrong goals and following the wrong leaders.
As Jesus taught the people, He illustrated His lesson with the example of, "The Good Shepherd." He was provoking them to consider where their lifestyle and their religious beliefs were taking them. Jesus' words help us understand the importance of who we should follow in life and where our path will lead.
