Psalm 52 tells the story of two trees, with God in the role of a woodsman. David first addresses the evildoer, who sharpens his tongue to cut and devour. Instead, God will do the cutting, uprooting the wicked man from among the living. Then David rejoices that the righteous is like a green olive tree in God’s house, carefully tended and cultivated. The wicked trusts in his own riches, but the righteous grows through the love of God. As you come to worship this morning, you are coming under the care of the Master Forester. You will be watered, pruned, and nourished. Under God’s watchful eye, you will grow and flourish, and so David leads you to give thanks.
