Encourage those that are struggling. Don’t know what to say?
Then open your Bible. The olive leaf for the Christian is a verse of Scripture.
To the grief stricken: “God has stated,
‘By no means will I depart you; by no means will I forsake you’” (Hebrews 13:5 NIV).
To the guilt ridden:
“There’s now no condemnation for individuals who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1 NIV).
To the jobless:
“In all issues God works for the great of those that love him” (Romans 8:28 NIV).
To those that really feel past God’s grace:
“Whoever believes in him shall not perish however have everlasting life” (John 3:16 NIV).
After receiving his olive leaf, Noah was a modified man. He went up the ladder of the ark with questions, however he got here down the ladder with confidence.
What a distinction one leaf makes!
