Deuteronomy 4:1-49; Luke 6:39-7:10; Psalm 68:1-18; Proverbs 11:28
“Whoever trusts in his riches will fall,
but the righteous will flourish
like a green leaf.”
“But I am like a green olive tree
in the house of the God
forever and ever.”
“The righteous flourish like a palm tree
and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
They are planted in the house of the Lord,
they flourish in the courts
of our God.
They bear fruit in old age;
they are ever full of sap and green.”
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
Heavenly Father, thank you for making us ever green. That the life blood of your son courses through our veins by faith. That when difficult times come our way we remain rooted and grounded in You. May we bear fruit and witness to your everlasting love in our words and actions this day. For Jesus’ sake we pray, Amen.
