Consider the lilies of the field and how they grow. They do not work or weave or sew, and yet their garments are stunning . Even King Solomon, dressed in his most regal garb, was not as lovely as these lilies. And think about grassy fields —the grasses are here now, but they will be dead by winter.

For you are established in the faith you have absorbed and enriched by your devotion to him! Beware that no one distracts you or intimidates you in their attempt to lead you away from Christ’s fullness by pretending to be full of wisdom when they’re filled with endless arguments of human logic. For they operate with humanistic and clouded judgments based on the mindset of this world system, and not the anointed truths of the Anointed One.
