A small boy is whittling away at a young tree with his jack-knife.
An older man, who lives here, walks up and talks to the mischievous little boy.
“What are you doing?”
“I see my tree has a wound.”
“Yes, did you know that cutting the bark from a tree will kill it?”
The little boy was very worried and the older man knew very well the boy had learnt a serious lesson.
“You need to come back tomorrow and I will show you how to heal the tree.”
“I will.” The little boy ran home to tell his mother.
We are all little trees with some kind of injury.
We all need to learn how to heal.
