A few years ago we had some logging done on our property in
. There were two very small and scrubby
Tamaracks close together. The logger
tried to convince me to get ride of both of them but because I like this beautiful
tree, and for that matter all trees, I decided to keep them both. Deer
Today I and my faithful dog “Bug” went to now what is my son, Jonah’s property and I was taken back by the beautiful gold color of these now much bigger Tamaracks. I’m thankful I hadn’t cut them down when we logged!
As I looked at them I wondered what the Lord had to say to me through these trees. He began to touch my heart. This is what I saw!
The tallest of the trees was straight and high, it seemed perfect! I saw Jesus!
The smaller one that was crooked at the bottom and deformed, I saw me!
But what was so special was noticing how the “Jesus tree” was pulling the “me tree” toward Him!
“Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.” Matthew 12:33
