Psalm 23 (8)

The last verse of Psalm 23 says, “Your goodness and mercy will be with me all my life, and I will live in the Lord’s house a long, long time.” David ends this psalm with an encouraging thought for all people who follow God.

Throughout this psalm, we have learned about the wonderful things a shepherd does for his sheep. He makes sure his sheep have good grass to eat and clean water to drink. The shepherd protects his sheep from wild animals. And he disciplines and leads his sheep on the right paths. The shepherd is good to his sheep. The sheep want to stay close to their shepherd. They know they will be safe with him.

We have also learned about the wonderful things God, our Shepherd, does for us. He is always with us to protect us, to bless us with good things, to feed us through His Word and to discipline us. We should love God and want to be with Him all the time.

Let God be your Shepherd. Love Him and follow Him every day.
