CONSIDER THE LILIES
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

 


I love the song "Consider the Lilies, the words are beautiful and they go right along with the Sermon on the Mount. You can find that sermon in the book of Matthew, Chapters 5, 6, and 7.

As Jesus was teaching his disciples that day,
Chapter 26: "Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them.  Are ye not much better than they?

Chapter 27: Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

Chapter 28: And why take ye thought for raiment? CONSIDER THE LILIES OF THE FIELD, HOW THEY GROW; THEY TOIL NOT, NEITHER DO THEY SPIN;

Chapter 29: AND YET I SAY UNTO YOU: EVEN SOLOMON IN ALL HIS GLORY WAS NOT ARRAYED LIKE ONE OF THESE.

As you read the last few verses of that chapter, Jesus teaches: "We have a heavenly father that knows our needs, and He tells us to "seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all the things we have need of shall be added unto us. 

The words of this song are a true blessing and a good teaching of Jesus Christ.

 There is a youtube movie below that I found while looking for the song to add to this page.  I do not know who is singing, but they did a grand job.  As you listen to it, just open your heart to the love of Jesus, and to His teachings.  We really do have a heavenly Father who does care when our head is bowed low.   I hope you enjoy the song and the video as much as I have.  ~MarieCs

 

 

Consider The Lilies
Written by: Joel Hemphill

Verse I

Consider the lilies they donít toil nor spin
And thereís not a king with more splendor than them
Consider the sparrow they donít plant or sow
But theyíre fed by the Master who watches them grow 

Chorus 

We have a Heavenly Father above
With eyes full of mercy
And a heart full of love
He really cares when
Your head is bowed low

Consider the lilies and then you will know 

Verse II 

Now may I introduce you to this friend of mine
Who hangs out the stars and tells the sun when to shine
And kisses the flowers each morning with dew
But Heís not too busy to care about you

God Bless You in your daily walk with Christ.
