Shepherds and the Lord

The Lord is the Chief Shepherd over His flock, but He has also placed men as shepherds over His flock that they might tend to the needs of the flock while they are on earth. However, it displeases the Lord when the shepherds do not carry out their duties. He said through Zechariah,
“My anger is kindled against the shepherds,
And I will punish the goatherds.
For the LORD of hosts will visit His flock,
The house of Judah,
And will make them as His royal horse in the battle.”
(Zechariah 10:3)
Are you a shepherd in the church? Do you know the condition of your flock? Do you visit them regularly? Do you teach them? The Lord watches to see what you do with your time.
