Did you ever notice?
In the beginning there was a tree–
“The tree of life was in the midst of the garden.. (Gen.2:9)
And in the end there will be a tree–
“also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations…” (Rev.22:2)
And in the middle was a most significant tree–
“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us–for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree’ “(Gal.3:13)
How happy is the man who trusts in the Lord!
“He is like a tree planted by water…and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” (Jer.17:8)
“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” (II Cor.9:15)
