- The rose of Jericho - part 5 -
Son of God
Mary thought this sounded strange. And the gift - it wasn’t much really.
It looked so poor and worthless. But then she thought about the qualities of the plant - so life-affirming. It never dies! It brings life!
That was what the other three gifts were missing. Her son would bring life to all who would kneel before him with prayers of tears and joy.
She looked at the rose. Now she understood. Her son would see what others did not see, what others passed by. He would be the rose that people would be drawn to. He would never die but bring eternity into time. The rose surely meant that he was the Son of God.
