THEME: GOD OUR SHEPHERD
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.”
-Oil was used for several functions including; priestly and kingly anointing, as oriental perfume, repealing parasites from sheep, dressing wounds etc. As priests and kings to God, He anoints us so that we may effectively represent Him here on earth. With anointing comes divine favor and the grace of God that positions us above our enemies. Our great Shepherd also extends excellent hospitality and favor by filling our cups until they overflow. God supplies for all our needs and ensures our cups overflow so that others may also benefit and glorify Him. God uses our lives as a blessing to those around us, and keeps pouring into our cups. May the Lord increase in us compassion to give to those in need for the glory and honor of His name.
