Considering the Lilies

I haven’t looked up this exact quote attributed to Jesus, I believe it is from the Sermon on the Mount. This is close: “Consider the lilies, how they grow. They toil not, neither do the spin. Yet your Father in heaven takes care of them. Why should he not also take care of you?”

I’m considering the lilies this day. There is a lot of toiling and spinning and toiling and spinning and spinning and toiling that goes on in me, and in many people that I observe. Considering the lilies, there is just being and blooming and trusting, emanating beauty and calmness and fragrance.

That is how I want to be. And it is my prayer for all of us to trust in this way, to thoughtfully consider the lilies.

    It’s kind of like they say in Taoism, “Know the yang, but keep to the Yin.” Your Sky Light dream is along these lines?
