There are good reasons why God is likened to a shepherd and we to sheep in the Bible. When we understand how we are like sheep, we'll better trust that the shepherd will take care of us. There's no better place to be than in the care of one who never stops providing for His own. We continue our study of Psalm 23 and see that the shepherd knows what each sheep needs.
Sheep are mentioned in the Bible more than 500 times. The picture of a shepherd with sheep was a routine part of life. Perhaps the most famous psalm is a comparison between God as the Shepherd of His sheep, namely us. Join us as we begin to venture on a journey this year of discovering how to experience what it means to say,
"The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing."
