Word For The Week
"The Lord is my shepherd, therefore I lack nothing"
This great Psalm of hope and security gives us wonderful assurances about all that the Good Shepherd will do for his flock, but it also challenges us about where we look for hope and security. David sets us an example of what it means to put our trust in God as our shepherd. David might have written "I am King of Israel, therefore I lack nothing", or "I have access to the royal treasury, therefore I lack nothing", or "I have an army at my beck and call, therefore I lack nothing". David was wise enough to know where certain hope and true security are to be found: not in the fleeting things of this world, but in the loving care of the Good Shepherd.
