The God of Thorns
October 14, 2022
Thorns are painful. They are a good deterrent from gardening and landscaping! The Bible uses thorns as a metaphor for adversity, pain and trials. Adam was told that thorns would be a part of his life until his death. All of mankind struggles with thorns. They can be a simple poke or a deep wound. We all experience pain. We all experience thorns. People often become desperate in their pain. Many try to comfort themselves with addictive behaviors. Some turn their thorns into anger toward their loved ones and often toward the Lord.
What if I told you that God uses chaos and panic?...
