Firmly Planted

Psalm 1:1-3 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
1 Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
2 But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
3 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].

    :)  Still pondering this! Look! The parable of the sower: Mark 4:14-20
    Shallow roots =v18-19=>the ones who hear the word and let it grow but allow cares of the world to “choke” it out and so “do not stand”

    *only one “soil” has “DEEP” growing roots=v20=>those who hear the word & accept it!

    ***Mark 4:24 Amplified Bible (AMP)
    24 Then He said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear. By your own standard of measurement [that is, to the extent that you study spiritual truth and apply godly wisdom] it will be measured to you [and you will be given even greater ability to respond]—and more will be given to you besides. 💕💕💕
