The Most Famous Psalm in the World: Psalm 23

Today's Reading: Psalm 23-25 and Acts 21:18-40

Today we read Psalm 23, which is probably the most famous Psalm in the world today. There is no shortage of great art inspired by this poem, so let me share two of my personal favorites:

I served in a church where we had recovering addicts from Teen Challenge come lead worship each year. The song 'You Never Let Go' by Matt Redman was one of their staples. I will never hear the lyrics the same way after hearing such powerful testimonies from those guys. God never lets go, He is so faithful.

For funsies let's jump now to a video from the Jewish tradition. In the video below, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi gives an explanation of Psalm 23's meaning.
