Thus says the Lord,
“Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind
And makes flesh his strength,
And whose heart turns away from the Lord.
For he will be like a bush in the desert
And will not see when prosperity comes,
But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness,
A land of salt without inhabitation.
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord
And who’s trust is the Lord.
For he will be like a tree planted by the water,
That extends its roots by a stream
And will not fear when the heat comes;
But its leaves will be green,
And it will not be anxious in
a year of drought
Nor cease to yield fruit.”
Like Joe Pug says, we come from a Nation of Heat. It’s probably high time we ask ourselves where we are planted.
