" ... 1 Shall Not Want"

  Psalm 23:1(b)

 

 I. "Want"

  1. Has a broader meaning
  2. Not lacking; Not deficient
  3. Also, being utterly content in the Good Shepherds Care

II.         Blessings

  1. A huge fallacy that is common is if a person is materially
    wealthy then those are blessings from God
                                                 

b. Bible teaches differentl

             i. Rev. 3:17

ii. Mark 10:21

c. For this reason we need to take a long, hard look at life

III.        Two Masters

  1. Jesus made it clear we can't serve two masters. (Matt. 6:24)
  2. Two Shepherds
  3. Good Shepherd: Protects, cares for, provides all
    necessities

ii. "Other" Shepherd: Couldn't care less. Brown pastures,
disease, no protection

IV.       The "Perfect" Ewe

  1. Strong, Beautiful
  2. However, she was a "Fence Crawler"
  3. Trained her lambs
  4. Had other sheep following her
  5. Shepherd cut her "Fence Crawling" days short for the sake of
    the whole flock
