Trees with shallow roots that interlock

September 22nd, 2013

I just heard a powerful message on ACC from Jentzen Franklin. He talked about Redwood trees. They grow up to 70 feet tall and their roots only go down three feet.

At first I thought they would fall over in a storm. But he said the roots go down and go sideways. Once they reach three feet down they go sideways looking for other Redwood tree roots. When they find them, they interlock and make each other stronger.

He used it as a picture of church and linking in to other Christians. How we can interlock and pray for, encourage and support each other. It was a really powerful picture.

God Bless,
Dave
