A Christian boy found a bible. A man told him to put it down. He said, “No, sir.”

The man replied, “What is a bible?”
The boy felt a little shy, but then he remembered that Jesus was watching over him.
The boy said to the man, “A bible is a way to help you learn about God.”
Then the boy added, “I really wanted to keep and read this, but I want you to have it.”
The 23rd Psalm
A psalm of David
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
