Consider the Flowers of the Fields

26 Apr

Every Sunday with the children of our Home Church we look at a portion of the Gospel according to Matthew.  This last week we shared from Matthew Chapter 6 verses 25-34 where Jesus tells us, “Do not worry about your life.”

As we spoke of how Jesus drew two examples from nature, the birds of the air and the flowers of the field, some birds began to sing louder and sweeter in the patio where we were meeting.  We said, “Each time you hear a bird sing, remember that God will take care of you as He takes care of them.”

Then today three families from our Home Church took a field trip to a vegetable production and exportation plant where a young man from our church is the Administrator.  After giving us a tour of their plant, we loaded into his truck and he took us through some neighboring flower fields.  The words of Matthew 6 came to life as we drove past the rows of bright hued blooms.

"Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow."

“I tell you not to worry about your everyday life–whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear.”

"They don't work or make their clothing."

“Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?”

"Solomon is all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are."

“And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, He will certainly care for you…your Heavenly Father already knows all your needs.”

So don’t worry about your life….
