What Kind of Person Are You?

I said this in a play once as Madea... LOL. But I thought I'd revisit it as Tyler for those of you who may not have heard it :-)

I have this tree analogy when I think of people in my life, be it friends, family, acquaintances, employees, co-workers, whomever...They are all placed inside what I call my tree test. It goes like this:

LEAF PEOPLE
Some people come into your life and they are like leaves on a tree. They are only there for a season. You can't depend on them or count on them because they are weak and only there to give you shade. Like leaves, they are there to take what they need and as soon as it gets cold or a wind blows in your life they are gone. You can't be angry at them, it's just who they are.

BRANCH PEOPLE
There are some people who come into your life and they are like branches on a tree. They are stronger than leaves, but you have to be careful with them. They will stick around through most seasons, but if you go through a storm or two in your life it's possible that you could lose them. Most times they break away when it's tough. Although they are stronger than leaves, you have to test them out before you run out there and put all your weight on them. In most cases they can't handle too much weight. But again, you can't be mad with them, it's just who they are.

ROOT PEOPLE
If you can find some people in your life who are like the roots of a tree then you have found something special. Like the roots of a tree, they are hard to find because they are not trying to be seen. Their only job is to hold you up and help you live a strong and healthy life. If you thrive, they are happy. They stay low key and don't let the world know that they are there. And if you go through an awful storm they will hold you up. Their job is to hold you up, come what may, and to nourish you, feed you and water you.

Just as a tree has many limbs and many leaves, there are few roots. Look at your own life. How many leaves, branches and roots do you have? What are you in other people's lives?

THANK GOD FOR YOUR ROOTS! You may want to call them today or share this message with them and attach your own note saying, "thanks for being my root".

By the way, don't waste your time sending this to a leaf, they won't get it anyway.

Love you,

Tyler

    What an inspirational, motivational and challenging words of wisdom, I loved it and surley it heleped me to identify one of those kind of people who are like leaves and banches in my life. This message guides any person who is or might face a situation not to blame or pay revenge when unexpected and unplanned things happens in their lives. I also thank God who taught me not to hate them but pray for them to change their ways of doing things and including myself because I am not perfect. This message is not long but the powerfullnes of it changes one's life style and makes on's to open up his/her mind that when it is time just accept it without trying to stand in front of the situation. We all don't want bad things to happen to us but they do happen whereby we stand no chance to stop them, it is a matter of time when comes, it comes as planned by the mighty God Himself, no one will and have power to stop it. I wish such good messages can reach out all people in the entire contint. We all have power to choose to be good or bad people, if we ignore the truth we become the enemies of good people because we can, we can make a good decisions and choices, all will be well and our saviour will be well pleased about our good choices.

    Wow! This is a must keep, I can't wait until you write a devotional or another book. This is one of those sayings you keep next to your heart. It reminds me of a saying that God gave me, "Don't depend on people to lift you up, then they can't let you down". Thank you for sharing your gift of writing to the world. Love in Christ, Temp
