Passage of the week: “The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” – Psalms 23
As I reflected on this week’s sermon theme it was difficult for me to escape past reflections since the verse is such a famous one. Something that stood out to me this week however was the simple fact that God is righteous not for us but simply because He is. He does not owe us a thing, and yet He has sacrificed greatly so we can live an abundant life with God as our guide, our comfort, and as our strength. Even when we’re unaware, and irresponsible with the love we give to worldly things, He is always there waiting and wanting to restore our souls. Nothing will be lacking when we learn to lean on God and in fact, we will be overflowing with the surplus of His love and mercy.
