Notice how in this neglected garden spot
the garlic stalks are leaning - toward the sun.
That is because they need sun for life.
This poor old cedar tree grew to the right to get
to the sun. That is, before the two trees were cut
off the stumps to it's left.
Because it's life depends on the sun.
The main part of this tree - the trunk and main branches -
is just left of center on this tree.
But, the tree is growing toward the right which is South,
toward the sun. It needs sun for life.
You and I are no different.
Jesus Christ the Son of God gives us physical
life. And he alone can give us spiritual life.
If we want life, real life, we had better be
leaning toward the "Son", the Son of God.
"Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does
not have the Son of God does not have life."
(1 John 5:12 NIV)
