Psalms 23

The Holy Bible
A Psalm of David.

1  The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

 

In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, pages 577- 578,
Mary Baker Eddy wrote:

    In the following Psalm one word shows, though faintly, the light which Christian Science throws on the Scriptures by substituting for the corporeal sense, the incorporeal or spiritual sense of Deity: 

PSALM XXIII

    [DIVINE LOVE] is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    [LOVE] maketh me to lie down in green pastures: [LOVE] leadeth me beside the still waters.

    [LOVE] restoreth my soul [spiritual sense]: [LOVE] leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for [LOVE] is with me; [LOVE’S] rod and [LOVE’S] staff they comfort me.

    [LOVE] prepareth a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: [LOVE] anointeth my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house [the consciousness] of [LOVE] for ever.

Bible Art: Adam and Fallen Man

BibleArt-Adam-2013Nov04By Marjory Hawkins.

As a Sunday School teacher, each week I pray about interesting ways toBy Marjory Hawkinspresent the stories and ideas in the Weekly Bible Lesson. The idea to make
art out of selected citations from the Bible lesson came to me recently as I was thinking about teaching the 5th-6th grade class. I wasn’t sure if any of them were reading the lesson on a regular basis, and thought if they could learn to love and appreciate individual citations, they might be more inclined to study  and love the entire lesson. The idea is to provide them with a template each week on drawing paper that they can paint (watercolor) and then fill in with a fine point marker with words, citations, thoughts on the upcoming week’s lesson. We bring them in the following Sunday to show what we each did with the page, and talk about what citations were selected
and why….which hopefully promotes a lively conversation about the Bible lesson.
