Psalm 52: 8-9
8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the steadfast love of God for ever and ever. 9 I will thank you for ever, because of what you have done. In the presence of the faithful I will proclaim your name, for it is good.
Reflection by Janet Derby
I have always appreciated the image of faith being like a tree. I value the roots my parents provided which has grounded and sustained me throughout my life. There have also been many people who nurtured and fed that faith as I grew. I continue to be blessed by faithful witnesses of God’s love. Like the psalmist, I thank God for all I have been given.
Steadfast God, thank you for all who have and continue to help me grow in faith. Help me to proclaim your name always. Amen.
