The Tiny Tale of a Talking (Proud) Tree

I wrote a little something a while back as I was reminded how important you and I are… and I thought I’d share it to keep us on the right track in the upcoming year.

A tree once told a human, “I have more value than you. I feed you the air you breathe, something you can’t live without. And I can do it for up to 3,500 years.”

The human said, “Well that’s not fair, that’s what you were made for. I can’t do that, it’s not my purpose. And, I can’t control the years I have to live.”

The tree then replied, “Well then what are you useful for in the 100 years you are here?”

The human said: “I can feed the heart while I’m here, something I was made to do. I have the capacity to love. You don’t…”

The tree then asked, “Won’t you die without oxygen? You can live without love. So, I’m more important.”

The human then replied, “Can you really live without love? Plants that are not taken care of die… is it not the fault of a lack of love?”

The tree stood still and couldn’t say anything back.

Are you not worth more than a tree?

What are you doing for humanity while you still have time?

While trees may feed the lungs, we feed the soul.
