Today, I read 1 Nephi chapter 8, which describes Lehi’s dream of the Tree of Life. This dream is full of symbolism. In the dream, there are several groups of people: the faithful, the confused, the embarrassed, and the proud. The fruit of the tree is sweet and desirable, and symbolizes the love of God. The faithful acquire this fruit by following a path to the Tree of Life. They stay on this path by holding on to the Iron Rod, which symbolizes reading the Word of God, or the Holy Scriptures.
I truly believe that the love of God is so very sweet, because I have felt His presence, when I am following His path.
