In our fellowship group on Monday night, we were tasked with rewriting Psalm 23 using a modern metaphor. This was my contribution.
The Lord is my Daddy, I have everything I need.
He provides for my everyday needs so I don’t have to worry about them.
He takes me on fun outings and walks to the park.
He teaches me good manners and good habits, like saying please and thank you and brushing my teeth.
Even though bad things sometimes happen, I will not be afraid because I know he will look after me.
When I am naughty, he will correct me and sometimes even give me a smack because he loves me and doesn’t want me to grow up into a spoilt brat.
He strokes my hair and tells me I am his princess. I am so happy I could pop.
I know my Daddy will always look after me and even when I grow up, there will always be a room for me in his house.
In my contemplation of these things, I came across the Japanese version of Psalm 23. It is well worth reading.
