Have you ever seen a rose bush? With its luscious petals and pretty leaves, it is a gorgeous flower.
But when you take a step closer, you can clearly see the thorns that poke out. With these thorns, it becomes difficult for us to pluck the flower. Our life is a lot like a rose bush. The rose itself is, Heaven. But along the way there are thorns....our struggles, sufferings, and sins. When we fall, we may be discouraged to keep going.
But we know one thing for sure. Our Lord Jesus walked through these thorns first, for our sins. Though he fell on the way of the Cross he kept going for us. So when we stumble and fall, we can run to Jesus, who can lead us to our final destination, Eternal Life in Heaven with him.
