A former co-worker used to have a sign in her classroom that read, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” This quote is attributed to the world-renowned scientist Sir Isaac Newton. No doubt Newton was speaking about how his accomplishments were because of the great scientists and mathematicians who came before him and who helped to point the way. As Christians, we could easily say that the same is true for us and that Jesus is our giant. All gifts, graces, and blessings we have are because of Him. In the scriptures, there are many references to Jesus being the shepherd of His sheep. Some pictures of the Good Shepherd show Him carrying a sheep over His shoulders. This is what Jesus does for us. He raises us up so that we can see His great love and will for our lives. In this Easter season, we are reminded of the resurrection awaiting us when we are called home.
