Verse of the Day: 'Must my sheep eat what you have trodden with your feet?'

By the Web Editors 01-05-2009
As for you, my flock, thus says the Lord God: I shall judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and goats: Is it not enough for you to feed on the good pasture, but you must tread down with your feet the rest of your pasture? When you drink of clear water, must you foul the rest with your feet? And must my sheep eat what you have trodden with your feet, and drink what you have fouled with your feet?

- Ezekiel 34:17-19
