Author's introduction:
“The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree — Psalm 92:12.

Wherever the Holy Spirit in the inspired Word has made any statement concerning anything, whether in regard to flowers, fruit, agriculture, horticulture, stock raising, minerals, earth, sea, sky, stars, science, religion, or what not, rest assured that statement is absolutely correct. There may be some statements which are hard to understand at first, but which may become perfectly clear when proper light is thrown upon them.

The Word of God abounds in comparisons. It says the wicked are “like the troubled sea,” the backslider like the dog “turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.” In the first Psalm it says the ungodly “are like the chaff which the wind driveth away,” but on the other hand the godly are “like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”

Wherever God has compared the godly or the ungodly with anything, He certainly understood the case and made. no mistake.

If one is not sure of his spiritual standing, it might be well to select something to which God has likened him, and then note the difference.

Among the most beautiful comparisons in the Word is this: “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree.”

The object of this little book is to show some of the characteristics of the palm tree blessing. Let the reader not forget to keep before his mind the thought of measuring up, and in that way be able to determine whether he belongs to the class mentioned. Please do not think of neighbor So-and-so, but keep your thought on your own personal experience.
