Tree of Life

Last night I had the opportunity to go to a Mona Vie tasting party. (I think I said that right) Of course they would like for you to sign up, as it is a network marketing company. Unlike some other network marketing presentations that I have suffered through, there was no pressure to sign up. In fact, no one did and no one complained about it. But during the presentation they talked about the key ingredient to this nutritional drink, the Acai berry. It comes form the Acai palm tree, which Brazilians call, Mona Vie or Tree of Life.

While I am not doubting the testimonials of people who drink this stuff. I couldn't help but think, this isn't the tree of life. Being that this is passion week, the timing of this couldn't be better. The original Tree of Life was in the garden of Eden. Because Adam and Eve sinned against God, they were banned from it. We read in Revelation that we will eat of it again in heaven. But how? Our original sin separates us from God forever. There is another tree. The Cross of Christ. On that tree Jesus gave His life so we could have eternal life. That tree is the real Mona Vie.
