"The sheep follow him, because they recognize his voice." Do we? We certainly obsess over words spoken to our ancestors. No detail is too small or obscure where they are concerned. But what about today's words? Do we even acknowledge their presence? Do we really think that Jesus rose from the dead so that he could stop speaking to us? Do we follow the memory of a shepherd or a living one? Yes, the shepherd is good, but do the sheep share that distinction?
