Hillside Thoughts

Matthew 6:28-30 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?


The world has become bipolar. Everything is poured into one of two buckets.  Everything seems to be either good or bad. There is no middle ground allowing reasoning. One bucket is much larger than the other.  The smaller of the two is filled with the good, pure, lovely, heartwarming, and beautiful.  But these wonderful things barely cover the bottom of the bucket. The sides of the bucket are rarely wet. It is too easy to give in to negativity. It is hard to see the good in the world. The hilltop lecture is telling me to be more cognizant of the beauty of life. God loves beauty.  He created beauty. I may not as well adorned as Solomon or seen as beautiful in your eyes.  Yet, God delights in the adornment he supplies.  I am a new creature born in beauty before God.  It is filling my good bucket today.  God supplies me with everything I need to do what God has for me today.
