Just found something I wrote about 3 years ago.
Sometimes we may feel like the bible is written in a whole other time. Well, maybe it is but God who knows all inspired the words in such a way that we can relate these passages to our everyday lives.
As a shepherd David wrote Psalm 23 describing his relationship with God with the terms he was familiar with. This is my Psalm 23:
I am the Lord’s student
I shall not want
He makes me learn all the formulae I need
He guides me through every subject
He makes me understand
He teaches me the correct way to solve problems
No matter how complex
Yea though I walk through the complications of Physics
I shall fear no failure
For He has taught me
My praise and my prayers go unto Him
He throws me A’s in the presence of my peers
My joy runs over
Surely wisdom, knowledge and understanding shall follow me
All the days of my life
And I shall dwell in God’s presence
I guess I never fully completed it but it seems pretty complete to me now. God is many things to one person and one thing to many people. We usually describe our relationships in terms we’re familiar with like David describing the Lord as his shepherd because he understood the shepherd-sheep relationship. So if you’re a student or a laborer, build a personal relationship with God – He wants to be your teacher, your father, your Master, your friend.
Enjoy the rest of the week!!!
