Thy Rod and Thy staff Thy comfort me

The psalmist David spent most of his days in the middle of danger. Perhaps he was thinking about the attempts made on his life by King Saul and others when he wrote, ”Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for Thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Before he became king, he was constantly dodging Saul’s murderous pursuits. As king, he warred with the surrounding nations, and toward the end of his reign, his own family members tried to overthrow him. But because he had been a good shepherd himself, he understood and counted on the protection from God, the greatest Shepherd of all. Today, on Grace Notes, Barbara Sandbek will talk about how the shepherd protects his sheep.
