“I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys” (Song of Solomon 2:1).
Have you ever thought of Jesus as the sweet Rose of Sharon?
Your mom may be a gardener and have beautiful roses of many colors in her garden. She probably loves to go out to her garden and smell the sweet aroma of those roses. Roses are some of the most beautiful flowers God created.
Think about Jesus in the same way as these lovely roses and imagine Him as the sweetest smelling rose God ever made, and the most beautiful you could ever see. Roses have thorns sticking out of them and can really hurt your fingers if you touch them. But you know that Jesus is so loving and sweet that He would never hurt you like these thorns might. Jesus is the sweetest Rose of Sharon you could ever meet. He is lovely and beautiful and is always sweet toward His children.
Jesus will never be unkind to you because He loves you so much and He is the kindest rose you could ever meet.
What color of a rose would Jesus be to you?
