In the Beauty of the Lilies


When problems arise,
considering the various lilies is wise.

Just as God so clothes them,
likewise, it’s from Him, that our provision will stem.

Knowing that, to worry, we would often be inclined,
Jesus’ guidance, for us, was not to have an anxious mind.

Simply reflecting on the beauty of the lilies can bring peace,
reassured that the care of our loving Heavenly Father won’t cease.

P. A. Oltrogge

“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith?

And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Words of Jesus from Luke 12:27-31 NKJV
