The Shepherd’s Hook

They hold the lanterns that light the path to my front door. Hummingbirds feast on feeders hung high from their hooks. I imagine David, the psalmist, tired and weary, resting his head on the crook of his staff. Maybe he used it to drum out a rhythm on a rock while he sang psalms to God. His occupation and tool, inspiration and example of God’s love and protection over him. A timeless example to us that God lights our path, feeds us, and his rod and staff they protect and comfort us.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (KJV)

“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:3-4‬ ‭KJV‬‬
