Comfort and responsibility?
Ps. 23:2 He makes me lie down in green pastures…
The lord’s promise to us is that as our shepherd, we shall not want, He will lead us beside still waters…and that He makes us lie down in green pastures, among many others.
What a beautiful promise that is. Enjoyable, isn’t it? Peaceful, lush and wonderful….but we have not a passive role, we do have a responsibility. See, even though we may want to lie own and relax, we gave to remember that the grass can be spiky and pierce our skin, and we’ve got to be careful. Paul says that all things are permissible, but not all things are beneficial. We’ve got to make wise decisions and be cautious about where we walk, where we lie.
