A Lesson From Winter Trees

I noticed as we drove past areas of ‘winterized’ trees last winter that they all stood tall and proud. Yes, there were a few tired and leaning, yet many stood tall and steady. As Spring appeared, I thought about those winterized trees, and I was reminded of 2 Timothy 4:12, NASB, where Paul told a young Timothy to “Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.” All the winterized trees weren’t necessarily young saplings but they maintained their inheritance as trees with plenty of life to display. It doesn’t matter your chronological age, your spiritual age, or even the age you ‘feel’ today. You can live tall and joyfully display the characteristics of your life in Christ to those around you. Do like trees do living from the life inside, and you’ll exemplify His love and grace.
