3 states of progress.

1) I don’t know a thing! Everything is too hard and too wonderful! I want to be great!

2) Aha, I have an idea. I’ve formulated a plan. I’m an innovator, a merchant, a dreamer. I am true to truth. I understand. I will be great soon.

3) The childish ways were better. I was not an innovator, a merchant or a dreamer. I conduct truth, and am therefore, great.

God is a tree hugger. Ermwell… kinda.

19 “When you besiege a city for a long time, making war against it in order to take it, you shall not destroy its trees by wielding an axe against them. You may eat from them, but you shall not cut them down. Are the trees in the field human, that they should be besieged by you?
20 Only the trees that you know are not trees for food you may destroy and cut down, that you may build siegeworks against the city that makes war with you, until it falls.

– Deuteronomy 20:19-20
