Are goodness and mercy the things that I seek
From Jesus my Shepherd today?
His emerald- green pastures and quiet pure streams
That encourage and guide in His way
And when I look back at the trail of the past
And those who are following me
Will they discover a Christ who is kind
And whose gentleness sets others free?
Or in my hurry while running so fast
Have I trampled hearts in my race?
Oh, that I would walk so that others could see
His footsteps of mercy and grace!
His goodness and mercy shall follow me
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever
Psalm 23:6 KJV

Your wonderful poem reminds me of the hymn “Let Others See Jesus in You.”
Thanks Dave, I will have to look that up. Alan also shared one this week I wasn’t familiar with. The more I learn, the more I appreciate the rich trove of songs left to us.
One of my favorite verses…thank you! 🙌🙌🙌
Thanks! It’s also definitely in my top ten!

As a parent I needed to read this. Thank you Pastor Pete!
So glad this helps. As long distance grandparents now it is very easy to forget the issues of up close and personal parenting. Blessings Beth. Thanks for stopping in.
