“Every rose has its thorns” means “Every good situation happens with misfortune or adversity.” Does the Bible address such a phenomenon? Glad you asked. However, it is not quite as sanitary as the previous illustration.

Proverbs 14:4

Where no oxen are, the trough is clean;
But much increase comes by the strength of an ox.

The meaning is clear. Every good thing in your life will also produce a little manure. My advice is be careful where you step, keep a shovel handy, and concentrate on what can be appreciated.

Give it some thought.
