"CONSIDER THE LILIES"

Pondering the promise of supply so well illustrated by our Master, as given in the sixth chapter of Matthew's Gospel, I was recently impressed by the simile in a way which to me was new and beautiful. That God's justice is also all-merciful is discerned only as the divine idea, that God is Love, dawns upon the human thought. The loving care here illustrated has always been quite evident, but the part taken by the lilies in deserving this protection had never before come to me so strongly.

Perhaps Jesus chose such a beautiful subject in order to point out the fact that the law of reflection was here fulfilled, that the flowers did their part in expressing God's qualities, and so beautifying the earth. Gently breathing into the surrounding atmosphere the beauty and fragrance betokening God's natural love, they quietly depend upon divine law for their very being. Mrs. Eddy says, "Whatever holds human thought in line with unselfed love, receives directly the divine power" (Science and Health, p. 192).
