The 23rd Psalm is one of the best known chapters in the whole of the Bible.A story was told of two men who entered a competition to recite this psalm. The one was a brilliant orator, a trained actor, and he recited it word perfect. When he finished the crowd applauded. The other was an old man with a speech impediment. He made a few mistakes and despite his difficulties he too managed to finish it.This time there was no applause but tears that flowed down the faces of the crowd. The actor got back on stage and taking the mic from the old man he said ” I could say The Lord is my shepherd but this man could say The Shepherd is my Lord”

Jesus warned us about laying up treasure on earth and encouraged us to lay up treasure in heaven. The millionaire died and many people attended his funeral. Someone asked ” how much money did he leave ? the answer they received was ” everything “. We cannot take it with us so let us make sure we use what we own and that it doesn’t own us.Give something to someone today and discover the blessing of being a blessing.Let your light shine in someone else’s darkness.
