Tree roots anchor the tree in the soil.  They help to keep the tree straight and stable. They absorb water from the soil. Tree roots also take the needed nutrients out of the soil and use them to produce what they need for the tree's growth, development, and repair.

We live in stormy times.  The winds of political upheaval and division are blowing strong.  The winds of cultural confusion are swirling all around us.  The winds of false doctrine and man centered philosophies assault us.  How are we to stand strong in times like these?  The roots of our life must be planted deeply in our relationship with God and in His never failing love for us.  The roots of our mind, will and emotions must be anchored in the unchangeable truth of His Word.  That is the only way we will remain straight and stable in these turbulent times.

  5. yes .. very "unsettling" times. i've sensed it deeply the past few days especially. thank you for the encouragement.

  6. I always love the imagery of us as trees with roots that need to grow deep and be nourished and leaves that need the sun and the elements to thrive. It puts us in exactly the reliant and delicate position we're in every day.
