Such a shepherd will be willing to be inconvenienced. Throughout Jesus' life, we see that as the Father directed Him, He always went, even if it meant walking hundreds of miles, having to sleep out in the open, having to skip a meal, etc. He cared impartially for the famous like the synagogue official (Matthew 9:18-19) as well as for the poor like the woman with the hemorrhage (Matthew 9:20-22). Jesus lived and died "without a thought for His own welfare" (Isaiah 53:8 Message) - and true shepherds are those who follow His example in living this way.
