When Jesus looked out at the multitude, He saw people with no lack of preachers and teachers (for there were many Pharisees and scribes); no lack of meetings (the people met in the synagogues on the Sabbath as well as at other times); and no lack of miracles (He had already done many miracles in their midst). What they did lack was shepherds.
The same is true today as well. We live in an age where the Bible and doctrinal teachings are readily available in printed format, online, on smartphones, etc., and almost all churches hold services multiple times during the week. But God is still looking for leaders who will allow Him to break their hard Self-focused heart and replace it with a soft shepherd's heart.
