1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
There once was a young man who could captivate any audience on Broadway. He was incredible and after one such performance was asked to come back, again, again, and again until finally he was requested to recite Psalm 23. So he did and again it was a wonderful performance. But then he asked an older gentleman on the front row that he knew personally to come up and recite Psalm 23. After that performance there was no applause, but there wasn’t a dry eye in the whole crowd. The young man climbed the stage again and says, “I know Psalm 23, but this man knows the Shepherd.”
The question posed was, “Do you know the Shepherd?”
I loved this questions and I hope each of you will take some time to reflect on how you know your Savior and your Shepherd. He loves each of us and suffered for each of us individually and personally. How grateful am I for the knowledge of a Savior and Redeemer of the world.
Have a wonderful week!
