  • The Lily Command
    Wednesday, November 3, 2021
    Messiah said, "Consider the lilies." Now that's a command. Have you obeyed it? Messiah is teaching us a lesson. Lilies don't have to worry about clothes, or money, or working; lilies don't spend their days worrying, toiling or struggling. So learn to be more like them and you'll be blessed. But there's more. Messiah could have used more examples of things that don't work for a living. He could have considered the chair, or the log. But he said, "Consider the lilies." In order to learn the lesson, you have to consider the lilies. It's really hard to worry or have anxiety when you're thinking about lilies. It's written in Philippians 4:8, "Dwell on whatever is good and pure and excellent. Let your mind dwell on that." Try to not think about things you need to dwell on, but what is good and pleasant and of God, as the lilies of the field. It's Messiah's anti-anxiety command. Consider the lilies. Have you obeyed that command lately? If not, you're probably bent out of shape. Set up time today, stop everything and stop disobeying God with anxiety. Fulfill the command and consider those lilies.
