I've always loved trees, the crowning glory of nature. But, just when I think I've seen the most beautiful tree in the world, I see more trees. This happens every year around this time... early falling Autumn. Every year I look around and realize, "Gosh! those are the most beautiful trees I've ever seen!" Yesterday it was Sweetgum trees next to a doctor's office. And, that's when I realized... doctor's offices have the most beautiful trees I have ever seen.
I suspect that it is intended to be advertising an appreciation for life...with living things. I've seen water companies in cities with large fountains outside, spilling water splendidly in arrays...advertising water in abundant waste. That never appealed to me. Wasting water is not good advertisment. The trees however, are beautiful.
Revelation 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side
of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits,
and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the
healing of the nations.
Apparantly the image has a lot of carry over as it begins in the garden of Eden and finishes in the New Jerusalem. Then, there are the images of the Healer, Jesus, who died in the middle of the two testaments to restore paradise lost in Genesis, and restored in Revelation.
It appears then, that doctors are reaching for an image of restoring what God created perfect, but has become spoiled, to its original condition...paradise restored. It's no wonder we often perceive doctors of having a "god complex." Sadly, it doesn't seem to have the same result, despite the beautiful trees, and all the money.
Romans 5:17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more
they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall
reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
And, there is the sum total of the matter. Jesus equals life. It all adds up.
