Is 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.
