From God’s point of view, we are all as daft as sheep, with similar habits for wandering off in the search for that perfect blade of grass. As such, we often get into dangerous places near the cliff edge, or fall into the orbit of a prowling wolf. Some of us die doing this.
Modern sophisticated people don’t like admitting they are just stupid ovines, because they are so dem fine and clever, dontchaknow. I say “Baaah” to that.
Faith is what we have when we can recognise our Shepherd’s voice. Learning that sound is the first step. He who has ears to hear, should prick them up and listen up (oboedire).
