Consider the lilies..

I was considering the lilies when I wondered whether Jesus knew about other flowers, beautiful than the lilies that is, to give us as an even better illustration of how even king Solomon in his splendor was not arrayed as such.

What I am saying is that I have struggled to consider the lilies’ beauty in the same way as I have struggled to rest in knowing he would provide as I rest in Him. But as I have shared my story over the past two years of how I was homeless and how I saw God’s daily provision with my own two eyes, I understand why Jesus didn’t use bougainvillea, roses or.. (you can name your favorite attractive flower here).

Jesus was saying that if God was concerned about grass.. you can see above in the link, lilies of the valley is just a decoration of grass really, about human beings. Mathematics can easily answer that.
