Praise hands

Psalm 23:1–6 (NIV)

1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 

3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 

4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 

6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

The Lord Provides Nourishment

Matthew 11:28–30 (MSG)

28“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. 

29Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. 

30Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

The Lord Provides Guidance

Proverbs 14:12 (NIV)

12 There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.

John 10:27–28 (NIV)

27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 

28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.

The Lord Provides Protection and Correction

2 Thessalonians 3:3 (NIV)

3 But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.

Hebrews 12:11 (ESV)

11 For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

Exodus 14:14 (NIV)

14The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

The Best Thing The Shepherd Gives The Sheep Is Himself
