Healing Leaves

Catherine McClung's avatar Catherine McClung

In the final chapter of the Bible, Revelation 22: 1-2, John offers a beautiful description of how God's mercy will come to all nations. "The angel showed me the river of the water of life....on either side of the river is the tree of life....and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations". Living in the Midwest, I delight in the beauty of leaves that I observe in all seasons. I don't know how God will use leaves from the tree of life to heal all nations but it is easy to imagine leaves, these amazing gifts, as conduits of healing. I treasure this message of mercy and the faith that one day everything will be put right.
