Psalm 1: 1-3…”Blessed is the one who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his/her delight is in the law of the Lord and on his law he/she meditates day and night. He/She is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he/she does prospers.”
Two things are noticeable about a fruit tree that’s received plenty of water. It has healthy, beautiful leaves and, when the time is right, it produces a healthy harvest. As we’ve entered the Fall Season, I naturally think about harvesting yummy crisp apples from the various kinds of apple trees! I love Autumn!
The writer of Psalm 1 says that the person who consistently makes the effort to listen to and hear what God has to say, and then obeys God by doing what he says, is like that well-watered tree. He/She will be a beautiful, healthy soul and, in God’s timing, will produce a beautiful, healthy harvest of righteousness for God!
Now let’s go one more step. I’m convinced that as Enon drinks deeply from the well of living water that comes from Jesus (see John 4: 14); as Enon consistently listens to Jesus and obeys what He says, we will continue to prosper and produce the most beautiful and healthy fruit of all—more Christians filled to overflowing with the fruit of the Spirit…love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control! (see Galatians 5: 22,23)
All Glory and Honor to The Lord of the Harvest!
