"The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want."


"Beware of false prophets,
which come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ravening wolves."

To Orwell Today,

Hi Jackie,

That was an interesting article recently about wolves. Another statement worth considering in this age of spin is from Matthew 7 v 15: Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing.

Greetings Ray,

Thanks for sending the reference to my play on words, ie WOLF IN JEEP CLOTHING.

Wolf and sheep analogies and parables go back to time immemorial because they are so apt.

And, it being GOOD FRIDAY today - the day proverbial wolves in sheep's clothing crucified Jesus - is a good day to quote that biblical chapter and verse from his words to his disciples - or as he sometimes referred to them - his "sheep" - of whom he himself was their "good shepherd" - as described so beautifully in Psalm 23:

The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters: He restoreth my soul;
He 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 Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest 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 of The Lord for ever.

Psalm 23 Song

Happy Easter 2008,
