“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 1:1-3

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Happy are those

who do not follow the advice of the wicked,

or take the path that sinners tread,

or sit in the seat of scoffers;

but their delight is in the law of the Lord,

and on His law they meditate day and night.

.

They are like trees

planted by streams of water,

which yield their fruit in its season,

and their leaves do not wither.

In all that they do, they prosper.

.

– Psalm 1:1-3 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

We are indeed very much like a tree

– we need nourishment,

and our prime source of spiritual nourishment, is Jesus

He provides all that we need

to grow,

to prosper,

and to bear fruit.

.

Unlike us, of course, trees cannot choose for themselves where to be planted,

in our case, we are free to decide.

.

It is so sad to see Christians, who were originally “planted” by the True Source of Life,

taking a conscious decision,

and moving away from the Lord for their own misguided and selfish reasons.

.

PRAYER…

.

Thank You, Lord, for Your Water of Life that never runs dry.
