I watched my brother cut down a big tree this weekend, you know the kind, still standing, had bark on it and still looked like a tree – but something wasn’t right with it.
He made a strategic cut and it was so weak it fell fairly easily. Once it hit the ground it fell apart, split into so many pieces, broken & fractured and then we saw it. The inside of the tree was dead.
The inside was no longer alive, hadn’t been for a while, the outside still looked pretty normal – ya know- tree like 🌳 but it was just standing there, dead. It just hadn’t fallen yet.
I wonder how many things we walk by or share our existence with that seem ok, look ok on the outside but on the inside, that’s another story, the inside is broken, or dead or hollow. All that tree needed was a strategic cut and it fell under its own weight.
