I have seen men acquire but a thin slice of knowledge over many a decade yet, in pride, invite others to feast as if it were the entire cake. And I have seen starved men eat of the crumbs of this Fast Supper then speak of satisfaction, blindly praising their host's selfish "generosity".
I have seen self-appointed shepherds fight amongst themselves about the superiority of single blades of grass boasting of right ones and wrong ones and chosen ones. Though, I have known their acquired strand of knowledge, in all it's articulated glory, to be nothing but a sheep misplaced from His herd.
I have seen impatient souls long await the return of prodigal sons and daughters to the flock; eager to glimpse a picture of the family that they are of no relation. But I have seen envy in the hearts of loved ones drive those brothers and sisters away again back onto the path to the Promised Land.
