Understanding Jehovah’s Love for us.


Everyone knows a rod (widely known as a cane) is used for support, stability, and prevention from falling over. Symbolically, a rod signifies a tool for discipleship, which entails the need for discipline. Jehovah’s rod protects the righteous from going astray, just like the shepherd looks after his sheep, counting them at the end of the day to be sure none is missing. When a sheep goes astray, the shepherd will set himself and his dog after the missing one until they find it, whether alive or falling into a predator’s trap. Similarly, the children without parents discipline are heading for future destruction. God deals with us in this way and more than we can ever imagine. He uses His rod to punish up so we don’t repeat the same mistake. Likewise, in the moments of suffering, His staff comforts us. No man can offer to us the kind of comfort we need except Jehovah’s because He alone understand every one of us.
