    THE ROSE PLANT

    A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully, and before it blossomed, he examined it.

    He saw the bud that would soon blossom and also the thorns. And he thought, "How can any beautiful flower come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns?"

    Saddened by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and before it was ready to bloom, it died!!

    SPIRITUAL COMMENTARY

    So it is with many people. Within every soul there is a rose.

    The Creator - like qualities planted in us at birth grow amidst the thorns of our faults.

    Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns, the defects. We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come from us.

    We neglect to water the good within us, and eventually it dies. We never realize our potential.

    Some people do not see the rose within themselves; someone else must show it to them.

    One of the greatest gifts a person can possess is to be able to reach past the thorns and find the rose within others.

    This is the characteristic of love, to look at a person, and knowing their faults, recognize the nobility in their souls, and help them realize that they can overcome their faults.

    If we show them the rose, they will conquer the thorns. Then will then blossom, blooming forth thirty, sixty, even a hundred- fold as it is given to them!!

    May the Rose within you all Bloom into the most beautiful flower :)
