    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]I know my sheep and my sheep know me.—John 10:14.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Nothing about his sheep escapes[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] the notice of our Exemplar.[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif](1 Pet. 2:21)[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] And the sheep fully[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]know the shepherd and trust his[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] leadership. To exercise his headship[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] in imitation of Christ, a[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]husband must learn to think of[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] himself as a shepherd and of[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] those under his care as sheep.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    He should strive to have an intimate
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] knowledge of his family.[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Can a husband really have such[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]knowledge? Yes, if he communicates[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] well with all members of his[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] family, listens to their concerns,[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]takes the lead in family activities,[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] and is conscientious about[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] making good decisions involving[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]such matters as family worship,[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] meeting attendance, field[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] service, recreation, and entertainment.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    When a Christian husband
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] takes the lead with knowledge[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] not only of God’s Word but[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]also of those entrusted to him,[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] it is more likely that his family[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] members will have confidence in[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]his headship and that he will have[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] the satisfaction of seeing them[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] remain united in true worship.[/FONT]
