2. The Shepherd knows where the green pasture is located.
3. The Shepherd finds the calm waters for the sheep.
4. The sheep cannot sleep if they are fearful, nervous or anxious. They will stand on all four legs and not lay down, ready to flee if attacked. The Shepherd protects the sheep from all enemies, so they can lay down to rest and sleep.
5. The Shepherd meets all the sheep’s needs. There is nothing the sheep will want or need as long as they are with the Shepherd.
6. The Shepherd guides the sheep on right paths to food and water.
