Consider the Lilies...

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.



This is the language I learned much of the Bible in. While the Message makes it fresh an practical, this will always be one of my favorite passages in the KJV.

Consider the lilies...indeed.

It's ironic how God uses others to remind me of truths that i need to continously believe and hope in.

Thanks

Do you ever read the Message and think "is that what it says?" I find myself reading the Message along with my old Bible so I can see if the old one says what I thought it said all along.
