The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. Psalm 23:1
It’s considered one of the most comforting of the psalms and is one most Sunday School children know by heart. If you haven’t memorized it yet, I encourage you to do so. It too will be a comfort to you.
Before that, though, let me ask a few questions:
Do sheep worry about where they’ll be grazing next?
Do sheep worry about where they’ll sleep tonight?
Do sheep know the way to go all the time?
Do sheep get only roam in herds and never stray?
Do sheep know when they’re in trouble?
It’s fairly easy to see why King David indirectly refers to himself as a sheep. We need a shepherd. Desperately.
