One day, while I was watering my backyard, The Lord taught me the following lesson. As I was watering the grass, I noticed part of the tree root popping out above the grass about 20 feet from the tree. It was then that The Lord came to me and said:
“If you wish to water the tree you must not only water it at the base of the tree but you should also water where it’s roots crop up all over the yard.” Said The Lord. “Stop and look.” He continued, “at all of the places where the tree root crops up in your yard.”
I did so. I found about a dozen places.
“If you don’t water all of those places”, The Lord continued “The tree will wither and die in the places where you do not water. Not watering the entire tree, in all of the places where its root crops up hurts the tree. In this way, the tree is connected to your yard and your yard to the tree.” The Lord pointed out.
“This tree in your yard can also represent the tree of life on this planet.” The Lord continued, “All life on this planet is connected. If you neglect one part of the life on this planet, be it an individual or an entire species of plant or animal, you harm all life on this planet because all of life on this planet is connected just as the roots of this tree are connected.”
With that, the lesson ended. I had always known about the connection of all life on our planet but The Lord put the connection together in such a simple, yet profound way that for the first time, I really understood the concept. I am merely relating this interaction here so that you might understand it too.
In True Faith,
The Prophet of Life
