Flores y Flowers; Vestidos y Clothing

Mateo 6:25-30

Nueva Traducción Viviente (NTV)

»Por eso les digo que no se preocupen por la vida diaria, si tendrán suficiente alimento y bebida, o suficiente ropa para vestirse. ¿Acaso no es la vida más que la comida y el cuerpo más que la ropa? Miren los pájaros. No plantan ni cosechan ni guardan comida en graneros, porque el Padre celestial los alimenta. ¿Y no son ustedes para él mucho más valiosos que ellos? ¿Acaso con todas sus preocupaciones pueden añadir un solo momento a su vida?

 »¿Y por qué preocuparse por la ropa? Miren cómo crecen los lirios del campo. No trabajan ni cosen su ropa; sin embargo, ni Salomón con toda su gloria se vistió tan hermoso como ellos. Si Dios cuida de manera tan maravillosa a las flores silvestres que hoy están y mañana se echan al fuego, tengan por seguro que cuidará de ustedes. ¿Por qué tienen tan poca fe?

Matthew 6:25-30

J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

 “That is why I say to you, don’t worry about living—wondering what you are going to eat or drink, or what you are going to wear. Surely life is more important than food, and the body more important than the clothes you wear. Look at the birds in the sky. They never sow nor reap nor store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you much more valuable to him than they are? Can any of you, however much he worries, make himself an inch taller? And why do you worry about clothes? Consider how the wild flowers grow. They neither work nor weave, but I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was never arrayed like one of these! Now if God so clothes the flowers of the field, which are alive today and burnt in the stove tomorrow, is he not much more likely to clothe you, you ‘little-faiths’?

lovely moth--how God does basic black and white

purple iris, one fully clothed and the other ready to burst open

lovely in its tender details

striking contrasts

tender-hearted

the beauty of potential beauty

gentle beauty

withered and faded, now providing shelter for a spider

These lovely evidences of God do not worry about their colors, their surroundings, their food…and still they burst forth in due season…even in the death of the blooms, the plant provides shelter and nourishment for other little beings. The beauty continues, just is a different way.
