In his beautiful book, "I Shall Not Want," Robert Ketchum tells of a Sunday School teacher who asked her group of children if anyone could quote the entire 23rd Psalm. A golden-haired, four-and-a-half-year-old girl was among those who raised their hands. A bit skeptical, the teacher asked if she could really quote the entire psalm.
The little girl came to the front of the room, faced the class, made a perky little bow, and said, "The Lord is my shepherd, that's all I want."

She bowed again and went and sat down.


That may well be the greatest interpretation of the 23rd Psalm ever heard.

    This little girl says it all. I think thats what Jesus was trying to tell us, and yet sometimes we get so caught up in our world that it is hard to accept faith like a child. All we have to do is look around us or get out in nature to realize that the world is a bigger place than the maze we run in.
