The Lord is my Shepherd. What does Psalm 23 mean for us today?
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want…” These words begin the world’s most famous psalm.
It is said at funerals. It is memorized, tattooed on arms, and underlined in Bibles.
Drawing from his own experience tending sheep, David penned a song to teach us about God as a perfect shepherd.
He provides for our needs and restores our souls. But this is no naive optimism; it occurs as we journey “through the valley of the shadow of death,” and even when surrounded by enemies.
This sermon provides background to the psalm and explores how powerful truths can carry us through perilous times — including your own.
