Woe to the shepherds who only take care of themselves! Should not shepherds take care of the flock? Ezekiel 34:2 NIV
Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Philippians 2:4
Divine Leader, we thank you for good leaders in church and community. Where leaders are not doing their tasks well, may they grow or be replaced; and may our individual actions be shaped, not by our leaders, but by our faithful “yes” to your call. Amen.
