Truly, all of God’s creations are marvelous works of beauty and practicality. Trees are beautiful, provide shade from the hot sun, and clean the air that we breathe. Their size, changing colors, and endurance through the seasons reflect a picture of God’s continuing love for all of us.
God says that we, too, can be like trees. Psalm 1:3 says, “And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Of course, this promise is dependent upon our fulfilling the requirements found in the first two verses of Psalm 1. “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”
