A Lesson for September 1st

Job 14:7 For there is hope for a tree, if it is cut down, that it will sprout again, and that its shoots will not cease.

I am amazed by the persistence of life. Tree stumps push up new roots. Forests regrow in valleys devastated by volcanoes or tornadoes. Why should we presume human life ends in the grave? The impact we have on others continues for generations. Scripture promises that our spirits continue eternally, that we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses. Spirits who have helped me connect with the divine. Spirits who persist to connect you also with God.
