This Tree of Life Cross is one of our most popular Christian gifts, perfect for those going through transformations of any kind, as a reminder of God’s life-giving and life-affirming power. The cross features an eyelet at the top to facilitate hanging, and at 4 by 3 inches, it is the perfect size for mounting in foyers, bedrooms, or (for the new high school graduate), dorm rooms. With its brilliant bronze and joyous design, The Tree of Life has long been a favorite of our collection.
Wisdom is a Tree of Life
This Tree of Life design is rooted in scripture–whoever receives it as a gift will forever be reminded of the tradition and importance of the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is of course first mentioned in Genesis, being planted alongside the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in he Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:9), and is said to bestow eternal life on all who eat of its fruit (Genesis 3:22).
Describing Wisdom, Proverbs says, “She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed” (Proverbs 3:18). Thus the lifelong pursuit and adoration of wisdom is the source of our spiritual sustenance and nourishment in this life. That message makes this a perfect gift for recent high school or college graduates: we acquire knowledge through schooling, but knowledge without Wisdom is useless–to keep growing spiritually and in our love of God, we must pursue Wisdom.
A Christian Gift for Anyone on Life’s Journey
The Tree of Life figures prominently in the first and last books of the Bible (Gen 2:9; 3:22, 24; Rev2:7, 22:2,14,19). As a powerful symbol of developing life, change, growth and immortality, the Tree of Life is symbolic of the development of our faith and the whole of our life journey. Whether you are experiencing a painful pruning or celebrating new growth, the image is a powerful symbol of hope. A Tree of Life celebrates and honors any occasion with its life-affirming message.
