The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want (Psalm 23:1).
A little boy was once asked to quote Psalm 23. Knowing the psalm, but nervous he began, “The Lord is my shepherd…” and then paused. His mind had gone blank
and he did not know what came next. Starting again he said, “The Lord is my shepherd…” and then he paused again. Frustrated he began a third time and said, “The Lord is my shepherd…and that’s all I need to know.” It might have been said out of frustration, but no truer words have ever been spoken.
If we trust in and follow after the Lord as the great Shepherd of our lives what else do we need to know? With Him we will never be in want!
