the shepherd weep as the sheep stray?
his staff lay at his side useless?
the shepherd turned away as the lamb cries?
he feast with wine as the lion nears?
is no herdsman that would allow such things!
a new lamb when born, must be lead.
lamb does not lead itself.
shepherd must decide the path of his sheep.
are found and taken for safety, shelter, and food.
from experience and training given to the shepherd,
right path is taken.
yet, as members of the church our Christ Jesus has lead,
act as though He sleeps,
we care for ourselves.
How pitiful we
Pitiful by Ronhales John 4:23
