The flowers

After Matthew 6:25-34

Consider the lily, perhaps the rose.

Nothing made by human hand

is so beautiful, so intricately 

designed and wrought as a lily

or a rose. Nothing. Flowers

serve as dinner tables, and yet

no dinner table was as elaborately

designed as a flower. They sway

in the breeze, their beauty

shimmering and often startling,

unmatched by anything we

humans put our hands to.


And you are loved

more than flowers.

You are cared for

more than flowers.

Let tomorrow worry

about tomorrow;

consider the flower.
