Good and Bad Shepherds: Which Speaks to You?Ted Vinatieri, December 28, 2014
Part of the Zechariah series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
New Life Community Church, Stafford, VA
15 Then the Lord said to me, “Take once more the equipment of a foolish shepherd. 16 For behold, I am raising up in the land a shepherd who does not care for those being destroyed, or seek the young or heal the maimed or nourish the healthy, but devours the flesh of the fat ones, tearing off even their hoofs.
17 “Woe to my worthless shepherd,
who deserts the flock!
May the sword strike his arm
and his right eye!
Let his arm be wholly withered,
his right eye utterly blinded!” (ESV)
