The Geese Shepherd

Sheep and apparently Geese. They know their Shepherd’s voice and follow him, and only him.

This video clip amazed me. One or two, possibly three geese may listen only to one man’s voice commands. But a herd of thousands (slight exaggeration, but not by much)? Take a ‘gander’ and see if it reminds you of something even more profound about a certain Shepherd. The story in this vid isn’t a new story. In a real way it has been written long ago through metaphor in the Bible.

My sheep (Geese) know My voice and they follow Me

“Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.

2 The one who enters by the gate is the Shepherd of the sheep.

3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for Him, and the sheep listen to His voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

4 When He has brought out all his own, He goes on ahead of them, and His sheep follow Him because they know His voice.

5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.”

6 Jesus used this figure of speech, but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them.

John 10:1-6

  1. Incredible video G.W. and great illustration of John 10. Oh to have the Lord’s voice so imprinted on me that another’s doesn’t even tempt me to follow. The wounded goose at the end, whom the master had to retrieve, reminded me of the passage in Ezekiel 34:16 “I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak. . .”
