“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but
inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Are
grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? Matthew 7:15-16
Stabbed by thorns
and choking on thistles
A sign that a place
will not be safe
for souls and hearts and minds.
