I’ve always enjoyed the analogies and stories based on nature in the scriptures and church talks. I’ve been planning to do a blog post on these stories, but after preliminary research, I’ve decided to make it a series of posts. I could write a book on each attribute of nature that is referred to in General Conference talks and scripture verses. There are so many: the mountains and valleys, the seeds and weeds, the storms, the sunlight, the darkness and night, the sheep and wolves, the flowers and trees, and even the simple sparrow that the Lord is mindful of.
The river represents many different things in the scriptures.
