There are many people in Idaho Falls who are caught up with temporal bigness and outward success. It’s tempting. People naturally flow to that which gathers a lot of other people. Security in numbers. Assurance with affluence. Might to maintain right. But over and over in the Bible, we are warned of the dangers of not taking shelter in what we build with our own hands. We are exhorted to flee from the insidious viper that lies within us all – pride. The most luxuriant trees in Idaho Falls because of a lack of humility can and will be cut down. Consider the sober reality of the watered tree in Ezekiel 31. My encouragement to you is this: Flee from the massive tree that does not utterly depend on God. I don’t care how beautiful it looks on the outside. It is only a matter of time before the whole super structure comes toppling down.
The Tree"For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river."
