“Do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear. . . 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.” Luke 12:27
Consider the lilies. Whenever the Bible says we should consider something, perhaps we would be wise to do it. Consider the lilies for instance. Look off into a field where lilies (or other flowers grow). Marvel at the ease at which they grow (forgetting the hard work that went into gardening).
Or Scripture elsewhere states: consider your life. Think about it. Ponder it. For a few minutes focus your entire attention on it.
We would do well if we took the time to stop and smell the roses, as it were. It’s a time to reflect on life itself. We lose that in all our busyness.
Don’t let a day pass you by without stopping and considering the beauty around you. In a world tends to be ugly and uncaring, certainly you can stop to find beauty (and it may even be your life that’s the beautiful part!)
