When I Follow (Psalm 23)
Psalm 23 is one of the most well-known passages in the Bible. But that familiarity comes with a challenge. Its images and ideas can pick up a sentimental nostalgia that keeps us from feeling the real impact of its message.
Psalm 23 offers us the remarkable realization that the valley of death’s shadow can be the very place the shepherd leads us to find green grass and calm water.
