365 - #216 (stability)

One thing I love about this playground is that it's surrounded by oak trees, which shade the play area.  This week I noticed all the roots....they're huge.  And it occurred to me that without all those roots, the playground area wouldn't be as strong and secure.  There are so many trees, that if they were all removed, the land would literally cave in.

And I thought of our lives.  If our lives are rooted in the Word (which is strong, secure, reliable, pure), then we will be strong, secure, reliable & pure, too.  And others will benefit from being in our lives.
But if our roots are rotten and filled with disease (of the heart), they will easily cause our lives to cave in.

Isaiah 61:3
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.
