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

TODAY’S WORD…

.

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)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

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?

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

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