The Big Persons' Table

We are helpless lambs,
     everyone, God’s kids,
          who need a shepherd. 
We are little children
     who at first must sit
           at the little kid's table.

But we are also more
     than mere selfish sheep.
We are made in God's image,
     in the image of them,
And in them we have the power
     to resist, to defeat
          every enemy within
               and each one outside.
We are to become the adults
     who choose to be led to victory
          and sit at the big person's table.¹

Psalm 23:5-6
