  • Be resilient like the palm tree

    “The righteous will flourish like a palm tree.” Psalm 92:12

    If you need some encouragement today, take another look at the palm tree. You can cut it but you can’t kill it. The nutrients that most trees need to survive can be found just below the bark, so when you cut them, they die. But not the palm tree; its life comes from its heart so it thrives even under attack. Don’t let surface issues derail you and don’t give into short-term thinking. Stay focused on what God promised you.
