The lilies of the field...why do you worry about what you shall wear? Look at how God clothes the grass of the field...not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed like one of these!
After hearing the scripture in Rob's sermon, I was brought to tears...because?
God cares about us, our clothing, our health...he cares so much that he arrays us with beauty! Lilies are a most beautiful flower. Nothing plain here, bu true elegance, natural beauty, striking beauty! He doesn't skimp.
The comparison is made between us and the grass of the field which will be cut down tomorrow...He knows that our lives are short, but: He wants them to be beautiful and glorious. Because, we are His children, and HE IS beautiful and glorious!
Did anyone else have similar thoughts? All in all, it was a beautiful and insightful sermon. The scripture was able to shine. Thank you Rob!
