The Bible is replete with many metaphorical expressions.

One of them is our focus today:

“The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.“-Psalm 92:12

What is unique about the Cedar’s growth?

  • The Cedar can grow up as high as a 10-story building.Hence it is called the ‘king of trees’.
  • Its best feature is its root which is said to be firm.
  • While its roots keep going down,other trees ‘rush’ to grow up.However,once its roots touch the source of water underground,its upward growth thereafter surpasses the other trees in the forest.
