One thought on “Scripture Roundtable 93: Old Testament Gospel Doctrine Lesson 43, The Shepherds of Israel

  1. I love Cassandra. She has such a tender spirit! I liked her insights on Ezk. 37 regarding the shepherds and the flock, i.e. we are commanded to help each other. I thought of perhaps another insight in addition to that thought that might be worth mentioning: Why do we help those who are less fortunate than we are? Do we help them so that they can feel happy and relieved, or that we might be able to feel happy with ourselves by feeling the spirit through service? Yes to both of those thoughts, but here is another reason that might be pertinent: It might be well to remember that serving others who are in need enables them to help others. Thus they receive the same blessings promised to all shepherds, whereas, without our help, they might never have had that opportunity,

    I hope this doesn’t sound like double speak.
