LIKE A TREE PLANTED BY THE RIVER

Good Day Friends and Family,

Psalm 1

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.

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 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.

4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

 5Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

 6For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

The wind that blows can never kill

The tree God plants;

The tender leaves have little rest,

But any wind that blows is best.

The tree God plants,

Strikes deeper root, grows higher still,

Spreads wider boughs, for God’s good-will

Meets all its wants.

Lillie E. Barb

It is a fatal mistake to suppose that we cannot be holy except on the condition of a situation and circumstances in life such as shall suit ourselves.  It is one of the first principles of holiness to leave our times and our places, our going out and our coming in, our wasted and our goodly heritage entirely with the Lord.  Here, O Lord, hast Thou placed us, and we will glorify Thee here!

T. C. Upham

It is not by change of circumstances, but by fitting our spirits to the circumstances in which God has placed us,

that we can be reconciled to life and duty.

F. W. Robertson
