Psalm 23 - July 6th 2018

The LORD is my shepherd

Read Psalm 23

  1. What does David teach us about God?
    1. What is God like? (Unpack the metaphor - what is a shepherd like? What do they do?)
    2. What does he do?
    3. Why does he do it?
  2. What do we learn about David?
    1. Where is he? (consider his situation(s), and what these poetic descriptions indicate)
    2. Where does God lead him?
    3. How does he feel?
  3. What is David's hope or confidence, and why?


  1. How does this apply to us since we are not David?
  2. How does David's hope become our hope?
  3. How does this point to/relate to Jesus Christ?
