Psalm 23 can be offered as a source of support for so many of our daily situations. It’s a multi-purpose tool!
Consider just a few possible uses:
- Child stressed out about a test? Suggest she think about being led to calm waters.
- Mom in need of revived energy? Psalm 23 reminds us that God always offers restoration.
- Child fearful of what lurks in the closet? Emphasize that God is our shepherd; his trusty shepherd’s crook makes us feel secure.
- Dad worried about the finances? Our cup overflows.
Here’s another way to present Psalm 23: Use it to bless your kids.
Say your child’s name and the words from Psalm 23 that are applicable to your child at any particular moment. For example:
May the Lord comfort you and lead you beside still waters.
