Are you a “shade tree kid?” God watches over his little lambs. Those lambs of the Lord that hear His voice and obey what He says; God is like a shade tree to them. He is always there, always providing shade from the hot Sun, and always giving us shelter from the storm.
Birds nest in His trees. Animals give birth to their young underneath the shade of it. Every child of God finds peace and rest there. God’s lambs who live under His shade, will be protected by Him as long as they stay there. We stay under His shade by obeying God’s commands; loving God and loving others.
Some choose to cut God’s shade tree down. They don’t want to be God’s little lamb or to live under His shade of protection. They don’t understand why they need His shade to live at peace with God.
The Lord is good. It is good to be under His shade tree of love and rest. Trust in God!
There is much evil in the world today. There are many who would tell you to cut God’s shade tree down. Some will say you don’t need God. Some say there is no God.
God uses lambs like me and you to plant His shade trees. Plant many trees! Tell your friends about God’s shade tree and how they too can find His love and protection as a shade tree kid.
— Psalm 121:5
The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand.
How can you plant more trees as a shade tree kid?
