As a shepherd cares for his sheep, so to does God care for his people. He provides us with all we need, he calls us to rest in him, to trust that he will lead us in the ways that we should go. Even though our path is fraught with danger and the evil of the world, he admonishes us to fear no evil. Why? Because God is with us. We can be confident that God is in charge. We are safe in him.
