The cactus is a plant which grows well in the desert.
You don’t want to get too close to it because it is very prickly.
Those prickles will hurt you if you touch them .
But inside the cactus it is soft.
Sometimes people on the outside are very prickly.
They may have been hurt and it’s their way of protecting themselves.
But inside they are soft.
Hurting people need love too .
God has called us to love.
Even to people who are prickly.
As we show love and forgiveness to people they will soften on the outside as well as on the inside.
Don’t give up on prickly people.
God has placed you where you are for a reason.
