Being a Fruitful Tree

What do you think of when you look at this tree?


Being from Nebraska, this tree looks to me, like it is sleeping. This appears to be fall or winter, the leaves have all fallen off, there is no shelter for birds or squirrels. The branches look weak and brittle, It looks dormant.

What about this tree?

Looks like a great place for animals to build a home, children to play on strong branches, and even a place to take shelter from the rain. It looks alive!

My devotion today centered on this passage from the book of Psalms, chapter 1.

1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,

2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.

3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
