“Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness” (Psalm 37:3).

To think that the psalms were penned in the idyllic conditions of a holy temple is to miss the importance of blooming where we are planted. The psalmist wrote in the harsh, barren landscape of Babylonian exile. It’s the reminder that we cannot allow our circumstances to determine who we are and how we act but, rather, it is who we are in Christ Jesus that determines how we act in our circumstances.
