Olive Branch

Sometimes, I catch a scene that makes me marvel at our natural urge to communicate across boundaries. When we don’t share language, we make simple gestures of friendship.

This one is between a human and a young orangutan. It reminds me of the idea of extending an olive branch to show goodwill.

Wasn’t it Solomon who told us that to have friends, we must first show ourselves to be friendly Pro 18:24 ?

When you don’t have an olive branch, you can simply use whatever is available. In this case, it seems to be working.
