Thoughts on Psalm 23

"And so, long into the night, David wove the day's saga into a song. He hurled that hymn to the skies again and again until he had taught the melody and words to every angel that had ears. They, in turn, became the custodians of this wondrous song and passed it on as healing balm to broken-hearted men in every age to come." - Gene Edwards, A Tale of Three Kings

"He makes me to lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul." - v. 2-3

Lord, let me not be selfish with Your love and mercy but rather let me be a conduit that Your grace can flow through to touch a broken world. May my life never be blocked by hypocrisy or hoarding. Keep me authentic. Help me to love sacrificially. Teach me more.
