The teacher of a children’s Sunday School class had her students memorize the 23rd Psalm. She gave them one month to do so. Little Bobby gave it his best, but by month’s end he still couldn’t quote all the Psalm. So when it came his turn at the microphone he walked up there and said, “The Lord is my shepherd, and that’s all I need to know.” I like his theology.
Christian, what perils are you facing today? What problems? What worries? What fears? No matter what they are, here’s what you need to do about them: just play the role of a sheep. You see, you have Christ as your great Shepherd, and He knows the direction you need to take. So listen to Him and do whatever He tells you to do! Furthermore, He is your protector and your sustainer. So trust in Him that He is going to take wonderful care of you. A good shepherd never abandons his sheep, and Jesus will never abandon you, even if the times get tough.
