2 squirrels and the Tree of Life

I was sitting at my desk, which is right next to the window. I was working and, as usual, I took a break to gaze out the window.

It had rained quite a bit through the night and all the snow was gone. It sure looked wet out there when, all of a sudden, two squirrels came from out of nowhere.

I sat and watched as they foraged for food and then I noticed something that brought a scripture to mind.

One of the squirrels apparently found something and ran up the tree. And that’s when I noticed the difference in their behavior. The squirrel on the ground was very alert of all things around him. He was still foraging but he was also looking for enemies. His head was going in every direction, staying alert for a predator.

When I looked up at the branch on the tree, where the other squirrel had gone, I saw that he was sitting there calmly enjoying his snack. He seemed to be more relaxed than the squirrel on the ground. He felt safe as long as he remained on the limb of the tree. And that reminded me of John 15.

In verse 5, Jesus says; “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers…” We are nothing unless we cling to the vine.

Just like that squirrel felt safe on that branch, we are safe as long as we cling to the vine; which is Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
