The Lord is our shepherd. We shall not want. 

The Lord looks after His sheep. He said, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you." This means that we who follow Him and hear His voice need only to follow His leading and He will attend to the concerns of the availability of green grass and still water and rest. In other words, whatever our requirements for life are, He will attend to those while we attend to the matters of His leading in His kingdom.

He is attentive to each of us to the degree that He knows what we have need of  even  before we ask. 

For the salvation He has freely offered us (for which a great price was paid), it would be our reasonable service to Him to gladly be His servants who do His bidding.

But our Lord goes far beyond that. He asks us to serve in His Kingdom willingly and further to that, offers to attend to our corporeal needs while we heed His voice in matters of His Kingdom. Further to that, whereas a servant in debt to His lord should expect no special pivilege, our Lord makes us sons and daughters of His Kingdom with whom He shares His inheritance of righteousness.

Praise the Lord our God.
