Psalm 23 is probably one of the most well known passages in all of the Bible. It illustrates the type of relationship that God longs to have with each of us by using the metaphor of a shepherd that cares for his sheep. It matters not whether the going is easy or whether the valley of the shadow of death looms overhead. The Good Shepherd is always present and always has a plan to keep us close to Him. The promise of God is that He will provide for our every need in every circumstance.
