Consider The Lilies
Luke 12:27 (KJV) Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Indeed, you will agree that God gave us many beautiful things to please our eyes on the landscape of this earth. God, the Creator, painted an array of beautiful flowers across the plains and fields in this world to stand as a reminder of His excellent ability and spiritual wealth dotting this earth.
Not only can we consume this wonderful nature with our eyes, but we can read about King Solomon recorded by the inspiration of God in His Word. The many accounts of his life teach us many truths, including the goodness and grace of God. Learning this pushes us to place hope in God for our needs rather than rely upon ourselves. Solomon’s life is dotted with the times he forgot about God’s providence and paid a high price for reliance on himself.
Today when you begin to worry and fret about tomorrow, consider the lilies of the field and the proof of God’s working in the life of Solomon and many other biblical saints as recorded in God’s Word.
