The Lord Is My Shepherd

Posted on Updated on

This psalm is probably the best known passage of the Old Testament. It is a testimony by David to the God’s faithfulness throughout his life. This psalm serves as a reminder to our kids that God watches over us and takes care of us.

“1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. 3 He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I 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 have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and loving kindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23
