The Good Shepherd

Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6

Ultimately, our shepherd leads us to our permanent eternal home with him. In the meantime, goodness and lovingkindness will follow in our wake. The word “surely” can mean “only.” With our devoted shepherd in the lead, only good happens. Yes, even in the valley of the shadow of death. Yes, even in the presence of our enemies. Hence the theme behind Romans 8:28.

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
