  3. A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23

    A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23

    by W Phillip Keller


    Arguably "The Lord is my shepherd..." psalm is the most famous and well known of the psalms and has spoke to countless generations from the time of King David until now. Even still in a contemporary westernized anti-Christian culture such as ours this gentle book can reach to our hearts, to our souls, and deliver us to still waters and green pastures for nourishment and understanding. In a culture that knows little of about agriculture and animal husbandry one would think that this psalm would get lost and lose its resonance. But the power of David's inspired words still reach us. Phillip Keller, himself and minister and shepherdsman at one time in Africa, brings his unique perspectives on not only the allegorical qualities of the prophet's words likening us to sheep ("...all we like sheep have gone astray....") but also on what it is like to be a GOOD shepherd. Throughout the psalm narrative the focus is on how the good shepherd (God) takes care of his own sheep (us) and Keller starkly contrasts this with his experience as a good shepherd and tender of his sheep against neighbor shepherds who did not care properly for their sheep. This adds depth, and warmth, to the shepherd song of David and we can embrace our God with more awe and appreciation because of it. Keller of course discusses the natural tendency of sheep (and rarely is it flattering, except for when they rest contented and healthy within and under the provisional care of the good shepherd) which is enlightening, sometimes amusing, and gently drawn across how we our like sheep beneath the auspices of God's care. The chapters are broken up by the cadence of the psalm (ex., chapter 1 is titled "The Lord is my shepherd" and chapter 2 "I shall not want") so that the entire psalm is represented by chapter headlines and corresponding themes. It's amazing how much he draws out of what we think of as so small and brief.
