Consider the Lilies… or the Dahlias

29 Sep

Taken with my Iphone

Lately, I’ve been keeping fresh flowers on my desk, and today, my lovely coworker gave me this beautiful dahlia.  Things are very tense at work these days, and I think for many of us, the fear of unemployment is our constant companion – I know it is mine.  In addition, I believe that the fear of not having enough is often strongest in those who have always had plenty (that would be me).

This morning, I was looking at the flower, and this verse in Luke 27 came to my mind:

“Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!” (NIV – Luke 27:27,28).

I think that says it all.
