Verse of the Day: 'Should not shepherds feed the sheep?'

By the Web Editors 11-24-2008

Should not shepherds feed the sheep? You eat the fat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fatlings; but you do not feed the sheep. You have not strengthened the weak, you have not healed the sick, you have not bound up the injured, you have not brought back the strayed, you have not sought the lost, but with force and harshness you have ruled them.

- Ezekiel 34:2-4
