The Promises of God:
"The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon" (Psalm 92:12).
The nature of the Cedar tree is, that it is always green, yielding an odoriferous smell, and an excellent kind of fruit, like unto apples, but of a sweeter taste, and more wholesome. The roots of some of these cedars are almost destroyed by the shepherds, who have made fires thereat, and holes where they sleep; yet nevertheless they flourish green above, in the tops and branches.
Another picture of how we are to flourish in our daily Christian walk!
