I think thistles are beautiful... and would love to be able to pick a big bouquet of them. There's just one problem, right? You can't touch them without getting pricked. A few thoughts come to mind about this life lesson from a purple flower.
A wolf in sheep's clothing.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I Corinthians 10 :13 - The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
Proverbs 31:30 - Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
What about you?
Can you think of another Bible verse or quote that might apply?
