No one has asked the question about the logo for Year in the Bible, but I’ll answer it anyways. There is a tree that has played the part of mascot for this site, and it is not just because trees are beautiful. We began reading psalms along with the Old and New Testament this week, and the first one paints a beautiful image of the one who delights in God’s word.
He is like is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
That is our aspiration in reading all of the Bible, together, and in one year. We seek to find our delight in God and in his word, and we trust that in doing so our roots will grow down deep into fertile soil. Our relationship with God will strengthen, we’ll be blessed with greater understanding of who God is and what he desires for us, and we’ll be better equipped to follow him in this world.
Psalm 1 is a beautiful reminder of what we can expect if we delight in God, and it also shows us what happens if we instead neglect him. Take time to try to memorize it, and in so doing, delight in the words God has given to us.
