John 10:14-16 NLT
“I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, (15) just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep. (16) I have other sheep, too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock with one shepherd.

A role of a shepherd:
Lead
Guide
Protect
Feed

Psalm 23:1-6 NLT
The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. (2) He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. (3) He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. (4) Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. (5) You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. (6) Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
