From Heather at Room to Breathe. God sure uses trees as a tool for comparison often!
- 1 Chronicles 16:33 CSB
Then the trees of the forest will shout for joy before the Lord,
for he is coming to judge the earth.
- Job 14:7-9 CSB
There is hope for a tree:
If it is cut down, it will sprout again,
and its shoots will not die.
8 If its roots grow old in the ground
and its stump starts to die in the soil,
9 the scent of water makes it thrive
and produce twigs like a sapling.
- Psalm 1:1-3 CSB
How happy is the one who does not
walk in the advice of the wicked
or stand in the pathway with sinners
or sit in the company of mockers!
2 Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction,
and he meditates on it day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted beside flowing streams[a]
that bears its fruit in its season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
