The Lord is My Shepherd.....And That's All I Need to Know

A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most beloved passages in all of Scripture - Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the chapter.
  • Little Ricky was excited about the task - but no matter what he did, he just couldn't remember the Psalm.
  •  After much practice, he could barely get past the first line.
  • On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Ricky was so nervous.
  • When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my Shepherd, and that's all I need to know."
You know what Ricky, you are absolutely right! 

That's excellent theology!!! 

No matter what life may throw at us, as long as you know that the Lord is your Shepherd, you're going to be alright.

What is true for Ricky is true for all of us.

The Lord is my Shepherd...and that's all I need to know!

You know what... that IS all we need to know! If we remember only that tiny part of Scripture, we have the reassurance that the shepherd will always be on the lookout for his sheep. It may seem like he is not doing anything as he oversees his flock but he is constantly on the lookout for the one who gets lost. He will go looking for that lost one... ! Praise be to God!
