Crooked and Straight Trees

Crooked Tree

As you can see, this is a very crooked tree. And notice that it is in the swamp.

A leaning tree.

This tree is not so raggedy, but it is bent over. It is also in a low area next to the swamp.

A very crooked tree.

This tree is a mess! And it is totally in the swamp. A swamp tree.

A very tall and straight group of trees.

Now here is a very lovely group of tree. Very majestic looking. And they are no where near a swamp.

Tall trees.

Notice that these tall trees are nowhere near a swamp. They were planted above the swamp.

Crooked and tall trees

In this picture, notice that the trees on the left are on lower ground and they are crooked and bent over. But the rest of the tree are on higher ground and they are straight and strong.

I was wondering if we can learn something from these trees. The Psalmist in Psalm 1:3 tells us that the righteous man will be like a tree that is firmly planted by streams of water. But it doesn’t say that he is planted in the water, but by the water. Those who are planted in the water get too much water. Are there some Christians that get too much water? I think a Christian that spends all of his time reading the bible and going to church, but has no ministry, he may end up like a crooked tree. He is getting too much nourishment–more than his body can handle. Just a thought.
