In Psalm 1, the psalmist compares a righteous person to a tree, firmly planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season; its leaves do not wither, and in whatever it does, it prospers. This is a recurring set of images that draw us to the importance of the work of God. The description in Psalm 1 is similar to the description of the tree in Ezekiel 47:12 and the tree in Revelation 22:2. In all three descriptions, we see the following:
A tree firmly planted by water.
A tree that yields fruit.
Leaves that do not wither.
A tree that is prospering.
We’ll explore these themes this Sunday at Willoughby Hills United Methodist Church.
I hope you are able to join us at either our contemporary service at 9:30 a.m. or our traditional service at 11:00 a.m. We are located at 34201 Eddy Road in Willoughby Hills, Ohio, 44094.
