Selected Notes/Illustrations
Psalm 23 undone

I have no shepherd
I want and am in need
I have no one to feed me in green pastures
I have no rest
I have no one to lead to quiet waters
I am thirsty
I have no one to guide me in the right ways
I don't know where to turn
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, evil surrounds me
I am terribly afraid for no one is with me to comfort me
I have no feast prepared for me
I am overwhelmed by my enemies
No one anoints my wounds or fills my cup
My cup is empty
All the days of my life are filled with disappointment and deceit
I have no home for eternity
Will I dwell in an evil house forever?

Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh.
