Jeremiah 17:7-10

But blessed are those who trust in the Lord

and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.

They are like trees planted along a riverbank,

with roots that reach deep into the water.

Such trees are not bothered by the heat

or worried by long months of drought.

Their leaves stay green,

and they never stop producing fruit.

The human heart is the most deceitful of all things,

and desperately wicked.

Who really knows how bad it is?

But I, the Lord, search all hearts

and examine secret motives.

I give all people their due rewards,

according to what their actions deserve.

  1. So true. God is love. They will recognize we are different...because of how we love our brother. Glad I came by to read. ~ jen
