You thrill to God’s Word, chewing on Scripture day and night. You’re a tree planted in Eden, bearing fresh fruit every month, never dropping a leaf, always in blossom. You’re not at all like the wicked, who are mere windblown dust.

Psalm 1:2-3, The Message


I love going for a stroll at this desolate spot dotted with acacia scrub brush. If I’m lucky I might see a few zebra and gazelle in the midst of the normally dry, dusty, and barren landscape. During my recent visit I was pleasantly surprised to see the vegetation quite green, due to Kenya’s recent rainy season. It made me think about the contrast illustrated in this scripture. If we thrill to God’s Word we will always be in blossom, just like this beautiful flower on a Sweet Thorn Acacia tree.
