“And the Lord said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd. For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that which standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws into pieces. Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.” Zechariah 11 v15-17 AKJV

“...execute true judgement, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother: And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.” Zechariah 7 v9,10 AKJV
Words to set so narrowly in ones momentous choice that passes by, not to reflect the immediate choice but intended to build the longevity of ones character in their desire to walk with God.
As the tree blows in the wind and reaches to its greatest heights wind cracks are developed to keep the tower from breaking of stiffly at the ground.
Lord, I thank you for this day. Amen
