Every one, a rose

1 Peter 4:8

And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves:for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

1 Peter 2:17

Honour all men.


You know, I think we should view every human being, deserving or not, whether we look up to them or they look down on us, as a precious rose that Jesus loves that we dare not crush--whether by stepping on it or by holding it too tightly. Even our children. Even those who could be blamed for scarring us or our children. Each is a rose that Jesus died for and that he alone can redeem and cause to bloom. Critiquing, blaming, overprotecting, or fault-finding are not our place. We are to enjoy the fragrance, avoid the thorns, and praise Him for the work He is doing that we may or may not see yet. This applies to EVERYONE:)
