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




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)






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.






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