“To people living in the tropical areas of the world, the coconut palm is the 'tree of life' and has been an important source of food, clothing and shelter for thousands of years. The tree is an excellent source of building materials. Posts and beams are made from the tree’s trunk. For clothing and household needs, the husk of the coconut is spun into a saltwater-resistant fiber called “coir,” used to make ropes, nets, mats, brushes and sewing thread. The leaves of the tree can be woven into hats, baskets, fans and brooms. Other household items such as bowls, spoons and buttons are carved from the hard shell of the coconut.”1
As the life giver, Jesus endowed the coconut palm with these abilities, and thus showing His loving character by providing needs through it. Isn’t God so good?
1 Peter 5:7 says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you” (NLT). As you proceed throughout your day, remember Christ’s unfailing love for you in this amazing tree!
