OLIVE TREE silver and mother of pearl
THE OLIVE TREE
the faithful compared to an olive tree
King David speaks of his yearning to be a faithful servant of Hashem he writes
“But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever.”(Psalm 52:8)
The olive tree is one of the only fruit trees that does not lose its leaves in the winter.
That is to say that walking infaithfulness necessitates an awareness that G-d's covering is constant. Yet just as importantly, it is critical to remember that olives aren't picked from the tree but rather the tree is hit with large sticks and the olives are then picked up from the ground. Then the olives need to be crushed in order to extract the pure oil.
Walking in faith necessitates an understanding that this walk will be filled with challenges and crushing experience. All this with the purpose of drawing out the purest potential in our lives
Yet the promise is that no matter how long or arduous the voyage may be the olive oil will always rise to the top
