B: They say the oil price is going to get higher in the next few months.
A: Oh, my. I want to be able to enjoy my car but not spend so much.
B: Then you just have to drive less.
A: That's not possible. By the way, what kind of car do you drive?
B: I drive a Hybrid.
A: A Hybrid? You don't spend much on the gas then.
B: That's right. It's small, but very green and economical.

We have heard a lot about going green or living green.

Driving less and driving smaller cars are good choices.
So, try to think green and live green.
Let's review the Everyday Dialogue once again.
It symbolizes growth, renewal, and health.
Going green and living green not only refer to our lifestyle.
Going green, Living green不单指我们外在生活形态而已
It also applies to our life.
What is it like to go green inside?
一个内在 go green 的人是怎样的呢？
The poet in the Bible tells us.
Verse of the Week每周金句
Blessed is the man whose delight is in the law of the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in season
And whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
Psalm 1:2, 3 诗篇
We all can imagine a tree growing by streams of water.
Likewise, a blessed man is like that.
He is full of life.
His work brings good results.
And the secret is this:
He loves to study God's Word.
The Bible is his stream of water.
Giving him life and nourishment.
Making him stay green always.
