“Best Shepherd Ever”

Categories: OLD TESTAMENT
     What does Psalm 23 mean?  I read that it means that God is our shepherd, and we are the sheep.

Sincerely,
Sheepish

Dear Sheepish,

You are seeing it properly.  Ps 23:1 says, “The Lord is my shepherd.”  That first verse sets the tone for the entire psalm.  David is comparing the relationship of God and His faithful to the relationship between a shepherd and his sheep.
