Arbor is a Latin word meaning, tree. The first Arbor Day was held on April 10, 1872 and an estimated one million trees were planted that day. It originated in Nebraska City, Nebraska by J. Sterling Morton. There are significant trees mentioned in the Bible.
>The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil that Adam and Eve were not to eat from.
> The Tree of Life that Adam and Eve were prevented from eating from in the Garden of Eden.
> The Great Trees of Mamre where Abraham’s lived and the LORD appeared to him by these trees.
> The tree which formed the cross Jesus Christ was crucified upon.
> The Tree of Life that produces 12 crops of fruit, one crop of fruit every month.
Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
Christians are not to worship trees. We worship God who created trees and causes them to grow today.
Plant a tree and praise our God.
