We went for a walk on our land tonight and talked about getting rid of all the thorn trees near where we want to plant fruit trees. On the way back to the truck, Sean stopped at one tree and said, “Man look at the size of those thorns.”
When I looked at them, all I could think was, “Jesus wore a crown of thorns on His head for me and you.”
I wish I had a picture. These thorns are easily two inches long, maybe more, and they look so painful. We think it hurts to be poked by a small tiny thorn, but Jesus endured thorns three times that size for us.
That’s pretty amazing!
So some of those thorn trees on our land, with their giant ugly thorns, will serve as a reminder of how much Jesus loves us.
