Yesterday we celebrated Good Shepherd Sunday at Church. It is a day to remember that the Lord is our Shepherd and what that means to us in our life. A Shepherd would provide for all of the needs of his flock. His whole purpose in life was to protect and take care of his sheep.

There is a story of a little boy who was memorizing the 23 rd Psalm. His parents had just helped him with the first verse and asked him to repeat it on his own. The little boy stood proud and tall and with all the enthusiasm that a three-year-old boy could muster he said, “The Lord is my Shepherd, that’s enuf.” He meant that is all he wanted to say, but oh what words of wisdom he spoke. The Lord is our shepherd and that is enough. We have all that we need in Him. May you find your comfort, hope and peace in the Good Shepherd today and always.

1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads 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 You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs 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 Forever.
Psalms 23:1-6 (NKJV)
