Lessons from the Promised Land-Part Three

Understanding Olive Plants

As I shared in my last blog, all it takes to plant an olive tree is a branch from a tree and good earth to plant it in, and of course water. Notice, you don’t necessarily need a bag of seed to plant an olive grove.

Just like God has made it possible to plant olive trees two ways, He has made families to form in two ways, by birth or adoption.


We would never say a tree planted from a branch is not a real tree. So, why would we get the idea that a family formed through adoption is not a real family? In God’s eyes they are the same.

Psalms 128:4&5 says this:

“Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine, within your house, your children like olive plants around your table.

Behold, for thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord.”
