The Shepherd's Contentment (Psalm 23:1-6)

Part of the Sunday Messages series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Today we visit a familiar Psalm, one that our culture has often reduced to a sentimental greeting card verse. But, unlike a greeting card verse, this Psalm is inspired scripture capable of leading us to the same godly contentment that King David found. By God’s grace may we realize as David did that it is the Master in people’s lives that make the difference in their destiny and contentment.

Psalm 23 (Listen)

A Psalm of David.

23:1   The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures.
  He leads me beside still waters.
    He restores my soul.
  He leads me in paths of righteousness
    for his name's sake.
  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil,
  for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.
  You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies;
  you anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
  and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
    forever.

(ESV)
