Thus says the Lord,
"Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes flesh his strength, And whose heart turns away from the Lord. For he will be like a bush in the desert And will not see when prosperity comes, But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, A land of salt without inhabitation.
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord And who's trust is the Lord. For he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit."
Like Joe Pug says, we come from a Nation of Heat. It's probably high time we ask ourselves where we are planted.
