Zechariah 11:17

“Woe to the worthless shepherd, who deserts the flock! May the sword strike his arm and his right eye! May his arm be completely withered, his right eye totally blinded!” — Zechariah 11:17

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

While we don’t like to hear bad news and don’t appreciate the pronouncement of judgment on others, there is a time when it is appropriate. Jesus was not only our sacrificial lamb, but he is also our Chief Shepherd. When the earthly shepherds of his sheep do not lead faithfully, he will demand harsh justice. This is a warning to all who lead that they must do so faithfully and tenderly. It is also a comfort to those who have been abused by ungodly leaders — God will wipe away your tears and he will bring about a righteous justice to those who have abused the stewardship of their pastoral calling.
