If I were a Hibiscus

If I were a hibiscus, how would I feel....face to face with God?
Would I thank Him for my five lovely petals and numerous rich yellow pollen or would I ask Him for half a petal and one pollen more?"


And why do you worry about clothes? See how the 'hibiscus flowers along the fence' grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even 'Miss Universe' in all her splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the bushes on the hedges, which is here today and tomorrow fades, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry...."


Adapted from Matthew 6:28-31


"I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learnt the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through Him who gives me strength."


Philippians 4:12-13


Reflection



  1. Are you satisfied with being who you are at home, in your church and in the world?

  2. How much of your resources are spent in longing for what is not yours in appearance, status, pleasure or material possession?

[From "Looking at Creation", a ReconRe Publication]
