As I prepare for an exciting summer sermon series on this most familiar and endearing psalm, Angie and I are having our boys memorize Psalm 23 as well. After 3 nights in a row of rehearsing Psalm 23:1a “The Lord is my Shepherd”, we quizzed them on the forth night. “Boys, what is our memory verse?” Without hesitation, Luke responds with “God loves ME!” Well, that’s true, and that is confidence, but that’s not the verse. Or is it? After we had a good family laugh, Angie and I rejoiced that in effect, Luke was right. “The Lord is my shepherd” means the “God loves me.” Isn’t it good to know that you do not have to worry about choosing the right shepherd because THE Shepherd has chosen you!
