“Trees Of Righteousness”

Key Verse

“… that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.” Isaiah 61:3b

Text — Isaiah 61:1-4


Our heavenly Father compared His people Israel with a garden when He brought them as seedlings from Egypt where He nursed them for four hundred years. And in due time, He transplanted them to the land flowing with milk and honey. He was very pleased with His vineyard. He dug round about every tree; watered and manured the land for them that they might bring forth fruits richly. He expected them to bear fruits pleasing to Him. Every tree is called by its fruit. Trees are used in the Bible to represent human beings.

Our Bible passage seems to say that there are trees that produce righteousness as their fruit. The trees here stand for the children of Israel. The fruits stand for their actions toward God and man. Our righteous actions will glorify the Lord and show we belong to a righteous God. What type of fruits do you bear? For your life to glorify God, all your thoughts, words and actions must be pleasing to Him.
