Learning lessons from the beauty of crocuses

March 26th, 2014, 9am

It was 6°C with few clouds. The breeze was gentle.

There were many beautiful flowers at Leeds Castle, but these crocuses seemed particularly lovely to me.

Small and delicate, and displaying such wonderful artistry, but I knew that this was just a transient thing. Before long the petals will fall and the glories of Spring will give way to the different displays of Summer.

No wonder Jesus used the beauty of the flowers as a challenge to his disciples when worrying about food and clothes instead of looking to Him to provide.

“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you – you of little faith!”
Luke 12:27-28
