In the garden, as in life, there are angels and there are devils – such as the angel’s trumpet and the devil’s trumpet plants.
If you look closely at each plant with its beautiful flowers, it’s easy to distinguish between them. The structure of the bush and shape and texture of the leaves make it obvious the flowers are from different plants. But, if you take the flowers away from the plants and compare them, it’s not so simple. That’s a good analogy to what the Bible tells us – when a new and beautiful idea or plan (or person) comes into our life, it’s good to make sure what “bush” they’re coming from. (“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14.)
