Read the Bible in 2011 ◊ Week 8: Wednesday
Psalm 23 is probably the most familiar of all the psalms as well as one of the most loved because of its reassuring words of God’s comfort and care. Its has been the subject of music and writings, and its theme of shepherd and sheep is found within both Old and New Testaments. David, the shepherd king, writes from his own life as he describes what it means for the Lord to be his shepherd.
“I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.”
