My Favorite Track…Psalm 23

downloadIs the 23rd Psalm one of the first Bible verses you learned? If not the Psalm itself then maybe its message that the Lord, God, Divine Love, Spirit, is our shepherd, who loves and cares for us and will never let us go?

The 23 Psalm was one of my first Bible verses committed to memory. I find great comfort in its message especially as I strive to walk in its truth, that God is my shepherd and I shall not want.

Taking the Shepherd’s Hand was written for The Christian Science Sentinel (April 13, 2009) and shares how I learned to know and trust this great Shepherd for the very first time. The resources I used in this piece were Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the Bible, and The New Westminster Dictionary of the Bible by Henry Snyder Gehman.

  1. Here’s Mary Baker Eddy’s spiritual sense of the 23rd Psalm. It can be found in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures pp. 578. Enjoy!

    Psalm 23

    [DIVINE LOVE] is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    [LOVE] maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
    [LOVE] leadeth me beside the still waters.
    [LOVE restoreth my soul [spiritual sense]: [LOVE] leadeth
    me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil: for [LOVE] is with me; [LOVE’s] rod and [LOVE’s] staff they comfort me.
    [LOVE] prepareth a table before me in the presence of
    mine enemies: [LOVE] anointeth my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house [the consciousness] of [LOVE] for ever.
