Why do you worry about clothing? Think about how the flowers of the field grow; they do not work or spin.

[Matt 6:28 NET]

God looks up at us–from every sweet flower that blooms. The beauty that fills our earth–is a pledge to us of God’s thought and love for us. We all know the familiar story of the great traveler who was saved from perishing on the desert where he had fallen, faint and famishing for water, by seeing a little speck of green moss peeping up out of the hot sand. This gleam of life assured him that God must be near, thus putting new hope into his heart, and giving him strength to rise and struggle on until he found water. Every plant or flower should remind us of God, and make us reverent.
