Eating With the Enemy

Like most believers I’ve committed Psalm 23 to memory and all phrases are impactful — green pastures, quiet waters, and paths of righteousness. However, it wasn’t until I listened to an audio version of the psalm that I was struck by the phrase, “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies” (vs. 5). I have to be honest, walking through the valley of the shadow of death sounds more appealing than being at a table in the presence of my enemies. “Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever” (Psalm 23:6 NIV).
