One of my favorite stories from the Bible, probably a big reason for that is because of a talk given by Elder Holland titled The First Great Commandment.
Also reminds me of a favorite scripture in Ezekial, where the Lord is speaking of how he will gather and feed his sheep. It’s important to remember, as Pres. Monson taught, that “We are the Lord’s hands here upon the earth, with the mandate to serve and to lift His children.” We each have a duty to watch over those who are around us.
“As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
…I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.
…I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick…”
– Ezekial 34:12(-16)
