Crown of Thorns

This is a Biblical Thistle. Among all the beautiful flowers in Israel, you also find these thorny weeds as well. Just like sin, these weeds are beautiful but dangerous. The pleasures of sin may be appealing to the eyes, but in the end it is bitterness, emptiness, and pain. The Bible says, "But that which bears thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation…” - Hebrews 6:8-9 Instead of being attracted and distracted by the thorns and thistles of sin, let us follow Him whom is called, “The Rose of Sharon and the Lily of the valleys.” - Song of Solomon 2:1
