Tuesday 2nd March

Shepherd King (Reflecting on John 10)

Sometimes I think I have You wrong, Lord.

Tender, yes, carrying those who are lost,

Broken, tired.

That kind of shepherd.

But also, perhaps

One screaming in anger

when the flock are threatened;

Flying to their defence,

Prepared to strong-arm

Any marauders

Who dare attack

Those you cherish.

Infinitely tender, yes,

But strong and powerful,

And raging

When it is needed.

That kind of shepherd.
