Small and simple

The Tale of Three Trees is a story that is the dream of three different trees. The trees imagine for themselves greatness. Their actual use is significantly less glamorous as a manger, fishing boat, and a cross.
Each tree realizes that their dream has come true after an encounter with Jesus Christ. The trees realize "by small and simple things are great things brought to pass" (Alma 37:6). The trees were not made into something super flashy.

The town of Bethlehem was not a flashy town either. It was a quiet town. A quiet birth happened there. Because of this birth which was discreet and announced to shepherds, we will each have eternal life which is the greatest gift of God!
