The Bible utilizes the tree throughout the Scripture. It is used as analogy to describe types of people either good or bad. What kind of tree are you? What types of fruit do you produce or do you produce any at all? These are some tree aspects talked about in the Bible. Jesus utilized the tree in many stories. Here are some verses:
- “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit.(Matthew 12:33)
- By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. (Matthew 7:16-18)
Even your faith is compared to a tree, the mustard seed that grows to have branches for the birds. Do not forget the tree of life that will be for all believers in the New City of Jerusalem. Believers will you be a good tree with exponential faith in Jesus. Challenge: Examine yourself to see if you are a tree with belief in Jesus to last throughout eternity.
