"I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep."
John 10:11

  • Shepherds actually know their sheep, and have earned their trust and confidence; Sheepherders view the sheep as numbers, and are only concerned on how they look as a leader and getting the task done.
  • Shepherds lead from the front; Sheepherders control and drive from the rear.
  • Shepherds know the right way.. the only way; Sheepherders are looking better procedures, and quick time saving methods.
  • Shepherds talk softly and whisper; Sheepherders use a loud voice, use their authority and expect results.
  • Shepherds rule with love. Sheepherders coerce with fear.
  • The sheep willingly follow the shepherd; the sheepherder forces by compulsion and eventually find the sheep leaving the flock.
  • Shepherds would protect the sheep with their life; Sheepherders protect their own life and reputation.
