See it.

Thorny issue

Live it.

The acacia tree is a genus that includes a hundred species of trees and shrubs in the arid and semiarid regions of Africa. This tree was common in the middle East in biblical times some even bearing long thorns. It is easy to surmise acacia was used to construct the ark of the covenant and the Crucifixion cross, but we have no evidence of that. Exodus reveals its use the Tabernacle and gopher-wood was prescribed as the timber used in construction of Noah's ark. We also know that cedar, pine and cypress were prevalent in the region and may have been used in conjunction.

Several years ago I made custom pen sets. The writing apparatus was manufactured but I used a lathe to turn wood, antler, clay and counter-top material into a cylindrical container. I remember one day walking into the exotic wood store and asking for acacia. They sold me what they thought was acacia (by another name) and soon was carrying a pen which meant more to me than a fine writing instrument.

Pray it.

Thank You, God, for another day to pray.
