Sheep's choice

After Psalm 95

The sheep have a choice:
accept who they are,
crowd around the shepherd,
heed the shepherd’s voice.


Do what’s always been done
ignore what’s in front of their nose
begrudge the blessings
Test, or vex, or both, the shepherd
(12 spies),
Reject the promise,
Reap the wilderness,
Find no rest.

That’s the choice.
