Prophet sharing the gift of eternal life
“Sharing the Fruit of the Tree of Life”
1 Nephi 8 and 11, Alma 32
“Other than Lehi’s awesome description of this great vision and metaphor for life, I’ve always been most impressed by his instant reaction to share the incredibly brilliant and delicious fruit with his family. Nephi tells us that his father saw a symbol for the ‘love of God’ and that it is the most desirable thing there is! What could be greater or more powerful than unconditional, eternal love? Little wonder Lehi wanted to share that with those he loved most!
I envision the symbolic tree as one that has withstood the test of time. A tree that despite the elements and the centuries of seasons, has not only survived, but thrived! Its roots have sunk deep into the life-giving earth. It draws continual nourishment year after year – readily giving all of its precious fruit; as an oasis in the desert, to any and all travelers needing its life-sustaining energy.
It is my hope an as artist that Lehi’s vision of the Tree of Life will inspire all of us to reach deeper inside ourselves and find that unquenchable source of love that nourishes and uplifts all we meet.”
