Flowers (3)

Wherever I have lived, I have planted lilies. I love colorful lilies, especially the orange and yellow ones. Often I look at the lilies in my garden and wonder how they can grow so tall and beautiful.
In our Bible Reading today, Jesus talks about wildflowers. Some Bible translations use the word “lilies” instead of wildflowers. Verse 27 says, “Think about how the wildflowers grow. They don’t work or make clothes for themselves. But I tell you that even Solomon, the great and rich king, was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers.” How do these flowers become so beautiful? God takes care of them!
Jesus continues talking about how God takes care of us. He reminds us that we should not worry about what we will eat or drink. Why? Because God knows what we need, and He will take care of us.
Don’t worry today! God will be with you and provide for your needs.
