“Hi, Neighbor Sheep!”
Ezekiel 34: 17, 18: “Behold, I will judge between one sheep and another, between the rams and the male goats. Is it too slight a thing for you that you should feed in the good pasture, that you must tread down with your feet the rest of your pastures? Or that you should drink of the clear waters, that you must foul the rest with your feet?” Different verses, same message. We must be respectful of and sensitive to co-members of our flock (neighbors). If we think only of ourselves, with no consideration of what effect our actions have on others, we have no right to call ourselves sheep of God’s pasture. Again, God judges our actions.
