The barbed wire fence in my neighborhood is there to keep some things in–and some things out.
Either way, the sharp points on the twisted metal are harmful if contact is made with them.
I noticed that a vine had grown, making its way on the horizontal fence, gently moving past the painfully pointed ends.
The delicate and persistent vine had overcome the danger of the protruding barbs.
There are many “fences” encountered in life.

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
