Feed My Sheep
John 21:15-16 "Feed my sheep" "Tend my flock"

Peter charged
to build His church,
to feed and shelter.

The directive simple
without exclusion,
nurture and protect.

Christ creates a recipe
with grains of love, hope,
and faith to feed his flock.

His blueprint for a strong shelter
built on rock foundation
of truth, compassion and justice.

From earlier scripture
"knock and it will be opened",
deems His flock inclusive.
without our judgment,
that's His job.

Stray or stay?


Perhaps, like the Prodigal, we all return in the end.....somehow, some way. Good rhyme, BTW.

This biblical citation is very much familiar. The progression of your verses, helped establish the critical choice. I like the alliteration in the first stanza, Tink.

Hi Tink, I like the way this moves from the contemplative and general, to the personal.
