I love this poem

You can't over-emphasize the power of a good example.

The Echo

Twas a sheep not a lamb
That strayed away in the parable
Jesus told.

A grown-up sheep that strayed away
From the ninety and nine in the fold.
And why for the sheep should we seek
and earnesty hope and pray?

Because there is danger when sheep
go wrong
They lead the lambs astray.

Lambs will follow the sheep, you know
Wherever the sheep may stray.
When sheep go wrong
It won't take long til the lambs are
as wrong as they.

And so with the sheep we earnestly
For the sake of the lambs today.
For when the sheep are lost
What a terrible cost
The lambs will have to pay.

C. C. Miller
