“the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD, will be like a bush in the wastelands; he will not see prosperity when it comes. He will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives.”
“the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him, will be like a tree planted by the water, that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought, and never fails to bear fruit.”
Which one will we choose to be? And which of these paths will we set before our children as they begin their own life’s journey?
Start children off on the right path, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
