What a Difference a Leaf Makes

Encourage those who 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 said,

Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you’(Hebrews 13:5 NIV).

To the guilt ridden:

There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1 NIV).

To the jobless:

In all things God works for the good of those who love him” (Romans 8:28 NIV).

To those who feel beyond God’s grace:

Whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life(John 3:16 NIV).

After receiving his olive leaf, Noah was a changed man. He went up the ladder of the ark with questions, but he came down the ladder with confidence.

What a difference one leaf makes!
