I just love trees. They offer so much to us. Oxygen, shade, coolness. They are clothed with such beautiful colors. They bear fruit to help nourish us. They help us understand the change of seasons. They are a part of God’s wonderful masterpiece- Creation.
all through out the Bible many different trees are mentioned. The tree of life, the tree of knowledge of good and evil, the cedar trees, the trees of Lebanon, the trees of the fields, the fig tree and many, many more.
In Psalm 1, the blessed man is said to be like a tree planted by streams of living water that brings forth its fruit in season, that will never wither but will prosper.
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was crucified on a cross that was made from a tree.
Take time to observe the trees around you. We can learn so many things from a tree. The tree is planted by streams of living water and receives nourishment to grow. Its branches reach out and provide so many things for our soul. It bears fruit for each season and its leaves follow the sun. We are to be like a tree, receiving nourishment from Jesus our living water. We are to grow and reach out to a lost world providing encouragement, comfort and love. As we grow we are to bear good fruit and every single moment of our life follow the SON.
Blessings and love to all!
