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.
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.
Happy Tuesday, Beloved
