little boy with whom a missionary once talked. The missionary found him tak­ ing care of his father’s sheep. He longed to tell him something about Jesiis, the good Shepherd, who gave His life for us. The little boy could not understand very well; so the missionary used the fingers of his left hand as I am using my fingers this morning. He told the story of the Lord Jesus, and as e%ch of the first five words of the Twenty-third Psalm was quoted, the missionary touched one of his fingers. When he touched the thumb, he said,' “The.” As the index finger was touched, he said, “Lord.” When he came to the second finger, he said, “Is.” The third finger was called “MY,” and the little finger, “ Shepherd.” He told the little boy that the third finger, “MY,” was especially important because he could have the' Lord Jesus for his very own Shepherd. The missionary went away, feeling that he had not been able to tell the little boy as much as he wanted to tell him about Jesus, the good Shepherd who gave His life for His sheep. Months passed before he returned. He looked for the boy, but could not find him taking care of the sheep. He found the lad’s mother, and was told that he had been frozen to death in a blizzard during the winter. The mother said that when the boy was found, his hands were in a strange position. With his right hand he was grasping tightly the third finger of the left hand! The missionary was very glad to know this, for he was sure that even as he died the boy must have been say­ ing, “The Lord is MY shepherd.” And, of course, if he trusted the Lord Jesus, the good Shepherd, as his Saviour, he went to heaven to be with Him forever. Each one of you boys and girls should accept Christ as your own Saviour, and then you, too, can say, “The Lord is MY shepherd.” Psalm 51*1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving-kindness: according unto the multitude of thy ten­ der mercies blot out my transgressions. 2 W a s h m e th oro u gh ly from m ine in i­ qu ity, and clean se m e from m y sin. 3 For I acknowledge my transgres­ sions: and my sin is ever before me. 9 H id e th y fa ce from m y sin s, and b lot ou t a ll m in e iniquities. 10 C reate in m e a d e a n h eart, O G odj and ren ew a rig h t spirit w ith in m e. 11 C ast m e not a w ay from th y pres­ en ce; and ta k e n o t th y H o ly Spirit from m e. 12 R estore unto m e th e io y o f th y sa l­ v a tio n ; and uphold m e w ith th y free sp irit. 13 Then w ill I teach tran sg ressors th y w a y s : and sinners sh a ll be converted un­ to thee* 32*5 I ack now ledged m y sin unto thee, and m ine iniuuity have I n ot hid.

walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we will not be afraid, for the Lord Jesus will be with us to comfort and protect. Daftd fed his sheep in good pastures, but a lion and a bear came to hurt them. David kilied both and took a little lamb from the lion’s mouth. Today the Lord Jesus saves us from Satan who is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. The Lord Jesus sends the Holy Spirit to guide us, and our joy will be like a cup, full and running over. God’s good­ ness followed David and will follow us all the days of our life if we, like David, let the Lord Jesus be our Shepherd. David was happy as he sang, “I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.” His song tells us that our bodies are the houses in which we live and the Lord Jesus wants to make our hearts His home. Then, even if we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, the Lord Jesus will make David’s body and our bodies come alive again, and we shall live in heaven with Him forever.
