On Quora, Eoin Kenny asked:  “Why do trees live longer than humans?”

Let me attempt an answer.

Because their roots run deeper than ours. Roots, representing faith, are constantly drawing sustenance from the Source of all creation. Trees teach us that as long as we draw from the Source, our lives are secure. It’s also important that roots are hidden. Deep faith is not broadcast on social media.
