We often like a nice manicured rose to give someone or to receive. I know I do! But have you considered the purpose of the thorns?
Without going too deep, consider how the thorns make you extra careful on how you handle it. Typically, you don’t grab a rose with thorns fully gripped. This is the same message to you! Some thorns are set in your life to make sure the people around you ‘handle’ you with care.
