... in a modern shepherd

Shepherds with prize sheep

The Royal Welsh Show is a magnificent day out. 

A sheep lover’s delight.  I was enjoying watching the sheep being judged in the ring.  But what struck me was the way that those showing them were wearing casual clothes. Jeans and trainers.  And in that moment I wondered what Jesus would wear if he were to be at the show.  Certainly not his long robes from bible pictures.  He would most likely wear contemporary clothes.

It funny how although I know and love the Lord so much I have a mental image of him in old-fashioned clothing and worse still even being old-fashioned when there is nothing to suggest this in the Bible.  I think Jesus is so much more contemporary than I give him credit for being.
