Jesse Tree - December 13, 2020 - Day 15

Sunday, December 13 (Third Sunday of Advent)

Then Samuel asked Jesse, “Are these all the sons you have?” Jesse replied, “There is still the youngest,

but he is tending the sheep.” Samuel said to Jesse, “Send for him; we will not sit down to eat until he

arrives here.” Jesse had the young man brought to them. He was ruddy, a youth with beautiful eyes, and

good looking. The LORD said: There— anoint him, for this is the one! Then Samuel, with the horn of oil

in hand, anointed him in the midst of his brothers, and from that day on, the spirit of the LORD rushed

upon David... 1 Samuel 16:11-13

David was first a shepherd, but when God called him to lead the nation of Israel,

he became a shepherd of people to help them become what God wanted them to

be. The shepherd’s crook on today’s ornament symbolizes Jesus as the Good

Shepherd who will lay down his life for others. Read 1 Samuel 16, 17 and 2

Samuel 7:1-17.
