What are the attributes of a person who is "like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God"?


Psalms 52:1 - 9

NIV - 1 Why do you boast of evil, you mighty hero? Why do you boast all day long, you who are a disgrace in the eyes of God? 2 You who practice deceit, your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor.

There are so many symbolic pictures within scripture and the olive/ olive tree is used frequently. The olive tree is known to be, when properly cared for, one of the longest living trees. It has the ability to withstand hardship, it's flourishes in the sun, it's fruit has many health and healing benefits, it has uses beyond just food and medicinal. The idea expressed for us is just that. When God is our stronghold, our foundation, we too are a picture of the olive tree.
