More often than not, we hear about the 23rd Psalm when we attend a funeral or at least when someone has recently died. It has been assumed by people that this Psalm is related in some way to death because it is mentioned in the Psalm itself. That could not be further from the truth. This is a Psalm of stedfastness, of faith going through difficult times, and of the tender Mercy of the Lord Who walks with you through it all. But how can this be, you ask. Ive always heard that it had to do with death. Hey, I saw "War of the Worlds". That preacher was praying the 23rd Psalm when he was killed by the aliens. Thats the prayer that you pray when you are heading for death, right?

In case you have wondered about this very thing, I have started a study on the 23rd Psalm that I am making available on these pages. All our lives, we have heard this Psalm. In Sunday school, we are even expected to memorize it. People say it when nothing else comes to mind. But do we really know what it means? When someone recites the Psalm, usually they are just repeating it, without actually understanding it. So, we are going to study what it actually means. We will take it verse by verse, breaking it down into separate studies. I invite you to join me.
