A certain man planted a rose and wanted it faithfully and before it blossomed, he examined it. He saw the bud that would soon blossom, but noticed thorns upon the stem and he thought,: How can any beautiful flower come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns?

Sadness by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and just before it was ready to bloom…it died.

So it is with many people .within every soul there is a rose .the God-like qualities planted in us at birth, grow amid 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 posses is to be able to reach past the thorns of another, and find the rose within them.

The rose doesn’t declare its need for water. It is either watered by her gardener or will be dead.

A parable of a rose which shows that we have a rose within ourselves. We just need to nurture it.
