The Great Shepherd

Continuing in Hebrews 13:20,21

'...the great shepherd of the sheep...,'

Glen and I had a discussion as to whether the
great shepherd was the Dad or the Son. The
Greek indicates it refers to the Son. So, we find
that the Lamb of God is also the great Shepherd.
What does this great One do for us according to
Psalm 23?

He meets our basic needs for love, worth,
      acceptance, adequacy, and safety
He feeds and waters us--the pause that refreshes
He protects and leads
He provides the table in the driest of deserts
He fills our cups to overflowing--during lack
His goodness and mercy follow us
We shall dwell with Him forever!!!!!

Reader, you probably know this, but isn't it
uplifting on a Monday morning to review the
tenderness and merciful care of the great
