Pause... and Consider By Pastor Rob Adams Goodness and Mercy Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life (Psalm 23:6a). David, the aged king, has taken a look back over his life. He has seen how the LORD has taken care of him since the days when he was a young shepherd boy. Much as he tended his sheep, the Good Shepherd has guided, protected, provided for, and corrected him throughout his life. He has never known want; his cup runs over. Today's text serves as summary and a promise. Every born- again believer needs these twin angels of goodness and mercy each day of his life. There are two great applications we can make from this sublime statement. First, goodness and mercy follow each of the Lord's sheep. The rancher's diligent effort and labor is essential to the wel- fare of the sheep. With such a shepherd, the sheep are in a privileged position, having implicit confidence in the 'One' who is in control. It is surely easy to say this when things are going well: our health is excellent, our bank account is full, our family is well, and our friends are fond of us. But can we say this when things are not going so well? When our body is breaking down, when a loved one is slowly dying, when our job folds up, our family is in disarray, and our friends prove untrue? Are there times that we are tempted to panic, to bolt from His care? Do we have the sad notion that we can survive better on our own? God never gives up on His sheep. We do not deserve His care. We love Him because He first loves us. The basis of our serenity is our confidence in His ability to do the right thing in all situations. At the end of each day, the sheep, lying in the sheepfold, could count his blessings, seeing how good the shepherd had been to him that day. As David looked back over his life, despite his sins and failures, the Lord had showered him with goodness and mercy. Second, goodness and mercy should follow in the wake of His sheep. Just as goodness and mercy follow us all our days, providing great blessing, should not goodness and mercy fol- low in the wake of our lives, providing a benefit to others? Sheep can, depending on their management, be either the most destructive creatures to the land, or the most beneficial. Left to themselves, they despoil land, especially causing great erosion. But with proper management, they are known as 'those with the golden hooves.' This is primarily because of their manure. It is the best balanced of any livestock. They consume a wide variety of herbage, including weeds that need to be controlled. Sheep can restore a ravaged land if one knows how to manage them. They leave behind great benefit to the land--goodness and mercy. Likewise, the believer should be a blessing to others. Is this true of my life? Do I leave blessing behind me? Jesus Christ was one who was known as one who went about doing good. Most of all, the believer should be a blessing to the LORD. When the shepherd sees his sheep flourishing, and ,th,e .,.lLn. d benefiting, this brings contentment. God likewise wishes to be satisfied. He longs for love--my love. When I love and trust Him, then He is satisfied. The LORD is my Shepherd...Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. www.ibcwestbrook.org New merchant surcharges on credit purchases Most of us have gotten used to charging purchases, large and small, on a credit card. Just by swiping the card you avoid the hassle of carrying cash. Look care- fully; you may notice a new fee on your receipt. Retailers are now allowed to pass along to consumers the cost of processing cred- it cards - though few have, to date. The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) is advising people they may be able to save themselves money simply by staying vigilant. It's called "merchant sur- charging" and it's permit- ted in most states. As of January 27, you can be charged up to four percent on each transaction and, similar to sale taxes, mer- chant surcharging can be automatically added to your bill. After a while, if more retailers choose to tack on this surcharge, these charges could add up, so consumers may want to reconsider how they pay for goods and services. Why now?
