Psalm 23

"God, My Shepherd & My Host" - Psalms 23

Even people that have never read the Bible are largely familiar with "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want." I can't count the number of times I have referred to this Psalm in part or entirely at a funeral. There is no argument that it is one of the most poetically beautiful poems ever written by that shepherd-king himself, David.

But, like so many passages in the Bible, you might know just enough to be dangerous! How well do you real know Psalm 23? It's six verses give not one, but two connected pictures that tell us about God and the benefits of being in His flock and coming under His roof, so to speak.

Reading and studying the Psalm is a wonderful experience, but living it and knowing it personally is even better. For a sheep the world is a dangerous place. Having a good shepherd is essential to staying alive and being healthy.

I am not sure if we will get to Psalm 24, but Psalm 23 will be the focus for tonight.
