Consider the Wild Flowers

By Jim Denney

A couple of times over the past few weeks, I’ve put off writing for the day, and my wife and I have gone out to see the brilliant “super bloom” in southern California in the wake of the recent rains. So, for this week’s column, no opinions or grand thoughts of my own — just glimpses of orange poppies, yellow mustard, and purple lupine.

Oh, and these great thoughts from the Lord Himself: Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you — you of little faith! (Luke 12:27-28).
