I Want to Be Like You

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I sat under a grand tree and asked him, “What is it you do?”

“I withstand the hot sun and provide shade when I do.”

“Oh, how I aspire to be like you!”


When life bears down, hot and dry, you can stand strong and steady through Christ, flourishing with fruit and providing a shady spot of relief for those you love.

Jeremiah 17:7-8

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,

whose confidence is in him.

They will be like a tree planted by the water

that sends out its roots by the stream.

It does not fear when heat comes;

its leaves are always green.

It has no worries in a year of drought

and never fails to bear fruit.
