Back when I was growing up we had a tree in our back yard. And is often the case after a storm the tree’s trunk cracked and blew down. There wasn’t anything we could do to save that tree. So my father borrowed a chain saw and cut down the tree right at the bottom so that all there was left was a stump. And I thought well that’s the end of that tree and now we’ll just have a stump in our back yard.

But an amazing thing happened with that stump. After a little while something began to grow out of that stump. We didn’t do anything to make it happen or help it grow. And yet it kept growing until there was another full grown tree in our back yard. It was something I never expected to see. We didn’t do anything special to that stump to allow for a new tree to grow out of it, but it still it grew.
