Old Oak Tree


"Great oaks from little acorns grow" - Well, that might take some patience! Oak trees don't produce acorns until they are 20, 30 or more years old - but if you walk under an oak that is seventy or eighty, you might need to open your umbrella to keep them from bouncing on your head. The trees can produce thousands of acorns.

The sight of big old oak trees encourages me because God said His people will bear fruit even in old age - ESPECIALLY in old age.

The seeds that fell on good ground are the people who hear and understand the message. They produce as much as a hundred or sixty or thirty times what was planted.
Matthew 13:23
