Trees: The Palm

As a Christian, you should strive to be like a palm tree by being be very useful. Here are some things that palm tree are used for:

  • Shade in the desert
  • Food
  • The Fronds can be used to make baskets
  • The seeds are food for camels
The palm tree's roots go deep into the ground in search for water so that it can survive even when it's really dry. Here are some bible verses about the palm tree.

Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs and seventy palm trees, and they camped there near the water.
Exodus 15:27

On the walls all around the temple, in both the inner and outer rooms, he carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers.
1 Kings 6:29

The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
Psalm 92:12

The vine is dried up and the fig tree is withered; the pomegranate, the palm and the apple tree--all the trees of the field--are dried up. Surely the joy of mankind is withered away.
Joel 1:12

They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Blessed is the King of Israel!"
John 12:13

After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
Revelation 7:9

Like a palm tree, we should try to be useful and strong. And we should go as deep as we need to to find Jesus, our water.
