Punished by giving them a wicked shepherd

Zechariah 11:16 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 that standeth still: But he shall eat the flesh of the fat, And tear their claws in pieces.

Can you believe how Go was punishing His people. He said He would raise up a shepherd for His people that would not help them. The ones that are lost, cut off, out of the picture will be ignored. He will not take care of the young and weak. He will not heal the broken. He will not feed the sheep. He will just eat and take advantage of them.

These are often the types of pastors that God’s people have today. It is as though our sin has brought this horrible spiritual leadership on each of us!

As a pastor I know that I want to do better and not be anything like this guy. I want to love God and His people. Are there any lessons you can learn in this verse?
