“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Ezekiel 34:11,17




Thus says the Lord God:

I myself will search for my sheep,

and will seek them out.


I shall judge between sheep and sheep,

between rams and goats.


– Ezekiel 34:11,17 (NRSV)






God has made Himself a shepherd for His people;

He always looks out for them,

neglecting none.


The Lord is the Good Shepherd

who takes care of all of us.


This love,

this care,

this kindness and concern of our Lord

includes the practice of justice.

Where there is Divine love and mercy

there is also justice

– in fact, love can never exclude justice


The Lord is my Shepherd,

I shall not want

– but is this truly how I feel?

Is this truly how I am?


We seem to have

an incessant and selfish desire to want more;

at any cost

– even at the risk of losing our soul.


When we will come to be judged,

by our Shepherd, our King,

will He find us wanting?






My Lord, my Shepherd, my King, I so want…to be found worthy!
