Strong Like the Olive

My Dear Child,


Have you ever seen an olive tree? Well, this tree is wonderful and beautiful and need a lot of sunlight and air to grow and live. It is noted for its bush-like shape, thick, twisted trunk, and small, elongated dark green leaves. Throughout its life it needs several prunings to maintain its balance. It is a hardy tree, and lives for many years. It is so important that it is mentioned many times in the Bible. You can read about it in the story of Noah, and in the story of Jesus. God wants us to grow strong and robust, just like the olive tree.


Your children will be like olive plants around your table. Psalm 128:3
