Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.
A family gifted a tree to his toddler son as a birthday gift. The village was highly deforested and needed major tree planting. The plant was planted in front of the boy’s house.
The boy disliked watering plant as a gardener every day. But his parents persuaded him by advising,”Trees drink water when they are thirsty like humans and animals.
The boy became a man and plant became a huge strong tree spreading the roots below the house and branches above the house. It became a major attraction to animals, birds and insects.
The village faced a significant months of drought due to deforestation though there were trees but very few in countable numbers. The was heavy crisis in village. The villagers prayed for the rain but little did they know what they had asked in desperation.
Man was worried that huge strong tree would die of thirst.
Nature struck the village with heavy rain causing flood and landslides. Lives and properties were destroyed, but huge strong tree hovered the house of the man to safety. Soon villagers started sacrificing animals and worshiping the huge strong tree as a protecting god.
The man disappointed with this nuisance myth climbed over the huge strong tree and said to the crowd,”Huge strong tree did not save me, it just drank the heavy flooding rainfall to satisfy its thirst”.
Enlightened with this wisdom- Now the villagers at least have one big tree in front of their house.
They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen Romans 1:25
