Consider the Lilies

Every flower that opens its petals to the sunshine obeys the same great laws that guide the stars. God uses the flowers to call our attention to the beauty of a character like the character of Jesus. The One who gave such beauty to the blossoms wants even more for our souls to be painted with a character like His.
Jesus said to look at how the lilies grow, how even though they spring up from the cold, dark ground or from the mud at a river's edge, they produce such loveliness and fragrance. Who could imagine that such beauty was contained in a rough, brown bulb? In the same way, few can imagine that a rough, unkind person can unfold into a generous, joyous individiual when touched by God's love. The life and love of God will spring out of every person who gives himself to Him.
