Wild Rose, (Rosa Rugosa) also called Japanese Rose, Rugosa Rose, and Turkestan Rose

(Wild Rose, Rosa Rugosa - 06)  This is another look at the wild rugosa rose.  The rose is one of the flowers that remind us of the way God deals with sinful human beings.  After Adam had disobeyed God (Genesis 3), God told Adam that his disobedience had cursed the ground and that thorns and thistles would grow where he had to till the ground to grow food (verses 17 and 18).  Nothing could be thornier than the rugosa rose, but in the midst of all the thorns, God places these beautiful flowers to remind us of his forgiving grace, if we are willing to accept it, and to also remind us that as peacemaking children of God (Matthew 5:9), we can free creation from this curse of corruption (Romans 8:18-23), if we are willing to do so.

Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
