feed the flocks

Ezekiel 34

v2

Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe [be] to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

We should pray for people who are in need, like people that are starving. We should serve people, like the people in our families, in practical ways like serving them food. We should preach the Word of God to His people, to feed His flock with Spiritual food. We shouldn't be too taken up with ourselves, to do these things for other people.

v16

I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up [that which was] broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.
I especially note the first part of this verse. It's an encouraging promise that the Lord will answer the prayers we've been praying for people in need, particularly the sick.
