“A psalm of David.”
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
For his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
Through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
For you are with me;
Your rod and your staff,
They comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
In the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
All the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
The responsibility of caring for and leading belongs to the Shepherd; (Jesus) the responsibility of obedience and following belongs to the sheep. Only Jesus our Savior can take the strain out of life and the fear out of death. The man or woman who puts their faith in God will not be afraid of the future. Have faith in God.
