Roses: a very fitting symbol for love. Because roses are sweet, but they have thorns. And thorns hurt; and they find you when you expect them the least . But that is why roses are so aptly used as a symbol for love, because you have to decide if it is worth it to you; decide to love even though there will be thorns.
And that is when I am blown away by the thought of unconditional love.
Jesus thought you were worth DYING for, and he didn’t just think it, he actually did it. He died for you and for me. That is how unconditional His love is for us. So when you think of valentines day, and how hopeless you feel, remember. You are worth dying for. Because someone already died for you.
