Lost and Blinded

Don’t you feel sad
Don’t you feel frustrated

When you entrusted
Duties and tasks

When you expected
Your trained persons
Your competent persons
To coach
To lead

Yet
They

did

a lousy job
Once they were leaders
They delegated without empowerment
They assigned tasks without giving supports
They didn’t follow up
They demanded reports
They want this and that

Your team slowly dwindled
Fed up
Burnt out

Exactly
In the Bible:

“Son of man
prophesy against the shepherds
the leaders of Israel

Give them this message
from the Sovereign L ord :
What sorrow awaits you
shepherds who feed yourselves
instead of your flocks

Shouldn’t shepherds feed their sheep?

You drink the milk
wear the wool, and
butcher the best animals
but you let your flocks starve

You have not taken care of the weak
You have not tended the sick or bound up the injured
You have not gone looking for
those who have wandered away and
are lost

Instead

you have ruled them with
harshness and cruelty

So my sheep have been scattered
without a shepherd
and they are easy prey
for any wild animal

They have wandered through
all the mountains and all the hills
across the face of the earth
yet no one has gone to search for them. (Ezekiel 34:2-6 NLT)
