Joy, my oldest daughter says to my seven year old Joanna, "The Bible says in Psalms 23 that, The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want."
Joanna exclaims, "Joy, why should we not want Him?"
I am constantly amazed by how literal children are! But, you know, it really is a very good question. Why should we not want Him? I am reminded how often I can go about my day, checking off my to-do list and all the while forgetting to stop and meditate on the One who gives me life. Today, let's make it a point to practice living in the presence of Christ. For truly, that is what the being a follower of Christ is all about.
