Contentment One-a-Day Tuesday 8/13/19

A life worthy

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want  (Psalm 23:1).

I originally heard this Psalm in the King James, which read I shall not want.  

The difficulty with that is that I want.

A lot

Time and teachers and translation have taught me that it’s not want as in desire, but want as in lack. I gotta say, I like this better. Though my flesh will always want stuff, I will never need more than what my Lord provides.

The Lord is my shepherd; I am complete.

The Lord is my shepherd; what more could I ask for?

The Lord is my shepherd; everything else is gravy.

Of course, I really do like gravy.

Oy, ve

Happy Tuesday, Beloved
