Discussion for Psalms 23

    Let us remember the condition of David, one of deep sorrow for his transgressions,and they were many. But David first knew he sinned, then told God his sin which God already knows. God heard his heart seeking grace and a mercy David knew was undeserving. He received what he cried out for, love and mercy he himself did not know. The one who lowers themselves is lifted up.
