“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” (Jeremiah 17:8)

A person whose trust is the Lord (v.7) has a unique and significant influence in the parched landscape of despair, fear, and anxiety. In times of uncertainty the hopeless masses lash out, fueling the fires of division and malicious rhetoric. As followers of Christ, however, knowing we are the ambassadors of Christ in this world, by words, actions (and social media posts), ours is to be a presence of calming peace and reassurance.
