In Word: The Tree of Life is symbolism of the Plan of Salvation. The love of God who is Jesus Christ. The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil is the representation of moral agency. It stands in opposition to the tree of life. It represents mortality. Adam and Eve remained in a state of spiritual existence. A state of innocence. A state of perfect union and harmony. Yet, to bring about the reality of the Plan of Salvation - humanity needed to make a choice. That choice led to the temptation and partaking of the forbidden fruit. The Tree of Life represented immortality and eternal life. The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil represented mortality and moral agency. All that encompasses human liberty and freedom of choice comes suffering, adversity, and sorrow. Yet, our Heavenly Father has prepared a way for us to overcome and endure temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13).
The Disease of Sin
Today I need to constantly remind myself that I am only able to save myself through Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father's grace. It is vital to my spiritual and physical well-being to keep myself humble, aware, and not traverse down that road of self-destruction and self-pity. Shedding the baggage of shame, guilt, and all the resentments and bitterness that had ,at one time, poisoned my soul and caused the fount of despair. I know that my natural man is constantly an enemy toward God. Yet my spiritual self draws nearer to Him as a humble servant willing and ready to walk in His light and truth.
