. . . That they may be called trees of righteousness,

       the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.

                                      (Isaiah 61:3)

 

Due to vandalism in 1989, two-thirds of the once majestic Treaty Oak in Austin began to die and more than half of its crown had to be pruned away. Yet because of all the human assistance from around the world, this very tree that was expected to die survived and is still standing today. If man can do that much work to save a tree, how much more can God do through His divine intention? What God plants, He also sustains with His life-giving power.
