"Consider the lilies"

One of the many beautiful sayings of Jesus is that one recorded in the Gospel of Luke, "Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." Jesus ever called attention to the beautiful and the pure, and surely everyone loves to dwell upon these things. To relinquish contemplation of the unattractive in favor of the lovely, good, and true is a worthy desire and an effectual help at all times.

Jesus also said, "If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?" This sound doctrine of an understanding faith bids us relinquish anxiety and worry over the daily needs of temporal experience.
