Today's reading: Psalm 100:3-5
Psalm 100:3 is one of my favorite verses in the psalms because of the message it conveys. And having grown up in a rural farming community (and living in the country now), I'm drawn to the visual this verse provides as well—especially the last few words that reference God's "pasture."
Right down the road from my current home are several pastures full of cattle I walk by frequently. I always take note of the pasture because it is so rich and lush with food and water. And I typically stop for a few minutes to watch the animals, who are satisfied and content. So when I read passages like Psalm 100:3 that tell us we are the "sheep of his pasture," it is comforting and pleasant to me.
"Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture" (vs. 3).
What does Psalm 100 convey about God's character? What does verse 3 reveal about God's love and care for you? Tami
