Like a lily among the thorns,
So is my darling among the maidens.

– Song of Songs 2:2

Then to Adam He said, … Cursed is the ground because of you; … “Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you;

– Genesis 3:17-18

Many people around us are just like thorns, and in our fallen condition, we ourselves are at times like thorns to others. As long as we are living among fallen men, and have our own fallen human nature as well, many situations will arise to try us and even hurt us, like the piercing of the “thorns.” But, in the midst of such situations, we are the lilies trusting in the Lord’s care for us.

Excerpted from The Song of Songs: A Divine Romance, by Titus Chu, page 75.
