Have you ever taken a moment, I mean a real opportunity to stare at, to study, to mull over the design, structure, stature, shape and size, colors and strength of tress. If you studied them you will notice no matter the season they are always in the same upright position. I believe we could stand to learn a lesson from the trees today and always.
No matter how hard the winds blow, some trees bend but they keep their branches (I like to call them arms), they keep their branches in one of the most vulnerable positions – raised, giving honor and reverence to the Creator of all. They always provide the example of how we ought stand – in submission, humbled before God. Jeremiah says the trees stand, unafraid of heat when it comes — the trees remain upright and resolute with no care for the season of drought. And Psalms says it brings forth fruit in ITS season, its leaves do NOT wither and all that the tree does prospers.
