A Tale of Two Trees VI – A Pilgrim’s Progress

"Arc de Treeomph" by Kent Brewer
“Arc de Treeomph” by Kent Brewer

I’ve been imagining a book. Actually a set of two. (But I think it’s really a trilogy).

On the cover of the first book, in guilded leather embossing are the words, “Law and Justice.” It’s thick with pages carefully explaining all the objectives of fairness, goodness and rightness. It tells everything necessary from proper judgment to reward and penalty down to the smallest point. Closing the book, on its back cover is another word in simple lettering:


Going onto the next book, the apostle Peter ended his second letter with its first words:

“Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”

That book is still being written.

The third book?  Not really sure how to describe it. It’s behind glass.

“Now we see but a dim reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”  I Cor. 13:12
