Cedars of Lebanon


Cedars of Lebanon

 Today's Lectionary Readings

This morning's reading from the prophet Hosea speaks of God's passionate love for the Israelites and his longing to give them good things. 

The cedars of Lebanon in their natural setting are described as one such example. I always imagined the cedar of Lebanon to be straight and tall, and was amazed to find this picture of some of these trees in their natural habitat: a rich, lush forest with canopy of shade - an Eden like setting.

So much of the time we take all that we have for granted. Today let us look around and give thanks to God for something we enjoy that is beautiful, given to us by a God who love us.
