Yellow Field Flowers

flock of birdsOn one occasion another type of teaching method was used by Jesus and endowed a heavenly meaning to the life of birds. Jesus was speaking to the people about faith in God and the foolishness of worrying about possessions, even the daily needs of life. Perhaps, he noticed a flock of birds fluttering in a nearby grove of trees. "Look at the birds flying around," Jesus exclaimed in Matthew 6.26, "they do not plant seeds, gather a harvest and put it in barns, yet your Father in heaven takes care of them! Aren't you worth much more than the birds?"

See a Flower!

Purple and Yellow Field FlowersThe next moment, Jesus maybe spotted a pretty yellow flower. He said in Matthew 6.28, "Why do you worry about clothes. Look how the flowers of the field grow! They do not labor or spin." He might even have taken a fragile blossom between his fingers and held it up for all to see. They might even have been sitting on a grassy hillside surrounded by thousands of the small fragrant blooms! Jesus bird and flower teaching brought home life truths in several strikingly different ways.
