At The Tree of LIFE, Happy are We...‏

Another great devotional from Todd Parsons:

 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction:
 For whom the Lord loves he corrects; even as a father the son in whom he delights.
 Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding, Prov 3:11-13. 
 
She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retains her, Prov 3:18.
 My son, let not them depart from your eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:
 So shall they be life unto your soul, and grace to your neck, Prov 3:21-22. 

 For the Lord shall be your confidence, and shall keep your foot from being taken, Prov 3:26. 

The tree of life was not forbidden to man in the beginning, but he was welcomed to partake of its fruit. Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding. They are not withheld from those who will humbly receive correction. After all, Jesus upon the Cross said, "Father forgive them they don't know what they are doing"... Man did partake of the tree of knowledge of good & evil, and God's judgement of man while He is hanging upon the Cross is that man does not know what he is doing, Father forgive them... Let us be quick to see that we are wrong with the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good & evil, not knowing Him who loves us, and receive correction from our Gracious Father at The Tree of LIFE... 

Of So Great Love, we are, tjp
