I started researching verses dealing with flowers... it was a good mini Bible study. Every time flowers are mentioned it's a reminder of the brevity of life. Life is SHORT...fleeting...minute by minute...second by ticking second...
"Like a flower he comes forth and withers. He also flees like a shadow and does not remain."
For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall,"
1 Peter 1:24
I might be a fine, pert little flower...or even already drooping in areas...but am I pleasing God with my life? Today? Tomorrow?? I'm fading fast...am I glorifying Him in how I act? Am I sending up a sweet smell??
The other verses I found about flowers deal with the brevity of life but from the slant that we don't need to worry. God will meet my needs. This is a point I need to make...He will NOT be needing my help. Really, really! His way is best every.single.time!!
"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin."
Hope these Scriptures stick in your minds as you look at your own pretty flowers!!
