What do you think of when you think of something or someone who is "good"? Jesus is all that, and more!
When the New Testament uses this word "good," the concept includes people who do good things, or bear good fruit (Matthew 5:16). But it is also used to describe the quality of a thing (John 2:10).
Have you ever considered that Jesus is not only the good shepherd because he is morally good (so you can trust his heart and motivations), but also that he is the good shepherd because he is really good at it? He shepherds well, so you can also trust his skill!
Jesus is both the perfectly intentioned shepherd, and he is the perfectly skilled shepherd. He will successfully protect and direct every one of his sheep.
