Sunday Musings | Consider the Lilies

There are several instances in the New Testament when Jesus reminds his disciples (and all future Christians) not to worry because He will provide all our needs. In Luke 12:27, He says, "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."

This scripture gives us a simple way to remember the promise of His provision - just look at some beautiful flowers! 

So, next time worry is consuming your thoughts, notice the flowers around you - whether's it a field of wildflowers you're driving by or the blooms in the flowerbed outside your window or a single bud in the vase on your desk or the arrangement in the painting hanging on the wall (or even the ones you take time to draw and color yourself). Let those flowers remind you that the Lord is your provider!
