The Sheep and The Goats

cartoon sketch of a goat and a sheep.

At the latest lecture at church, the topic of the sorting of the sheep and goats came up.  One woman volunteered that she had grown up on a farm and watched these animals.  She described how sheep were dumb and needed to be told everything to do.  Goats on the other hoof, are stubborn and opinionated and won’t do anything that they don’t want to do.

Wait a minute, you have just described terriers!  They are strong willed and stubborn and opinionated and they are certain they are the smartest ones in the room.  The won’t do anything unless they see a benefit to themselves.  It does make you wonder sometimes why we have them.

And yet….I love these little guys more than anything.  When I found out Geordie was sick, I cried for weeks.  What fun will life be without that stubborn little soul to argue with?

And so I wonder, if I can love a little “goat”, can’t God?

  1. Our Westie had puppies and we had the chance to see her teach them how to be feisty. She would jump on them from the couch! She knew they would lead rough and tumble lives, even in a household, and she was getting them ready.
