MR No. 130—Church Members Draw Nourishment From Above

Of all the trees, the Scotch Fir tree is one of the best from which Christians may draw inspiring lessons.... 2MR 180.1

Church members who are standing in their lot and place are trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord. Although their surrounding circumstances may be adverse, yet, like the fir tree with little soil about its roots, they constantly reach heavenward, drawing nourishment from above. Like the fragrant boughs of the fir tree, they impart grace for grace received. The hidden nourishment that comes from God is returned to Him in purest service.—Manuscript 145, 1902, 5, 6.
