Two trees stand side by side as they have for quite awhile and little do they know, life is about to change them. One of the trees is ancient and has become brittle. The other tree is young and flexible. The older tree states that it can survive nature better than the younger one because it stands firm and roots are deep. The younger one says that may be useful for alot of things but not handling storms that rage past normal levels.
How very often we have seen the old brittle ones who are torn to pieces by lifes storms. It is often that the ones who have not become so rigid in their ways are able to bend and flex with the wind instead of fighting against it.
Which tree do you want to be?
