Roses

Roses that are grown in a hot-house are very beautiful but they don't have much of that inticing rose fragrance. Why is that? Hot houses roses don't have to develop a heavy scent to attract bees in order to flourish. They are fed, watered, and watched over by the gardener, all in perfect conditions. Roses outside face harsher conditions with the wind, rain, cold, heat, and bugs. Outside, roses must develop the strong rose scent in order to attract the bees. They are both beautiful to see and to smell. If we lived under perfect conditions, we might look beatiful, but it is those who are tempered in the heat of the Lord's oven of adversity who become beatiful spiritually.
