The Gospel of the Little Flowers

Image

I have often noticed flowers that are often left alone
By the wayside as decorative plants or just as wildflowers.
Someone took a closer look and found out
That these simple and modest blooms had more to offer.
They do add color and beauty to a garden or to any spot for that matter.
Some have medicinal properties; others add value to nutrition.
Some theory says that the development of man’s brain and of his consciousness
Started when colorful flower like these appeared on earth.
When God was done with His creation, He saw all that he had made, and it was very good.
It takes man to discover that goodness and proclaim too that it is good.

Most of man’s history has been the quest for wealth, power and fame.
Much of history has been written by wealthy, powerful and famous persons.
And many even today go on their own quest for wealth, power and fame.
Until one person came along and turned things upside down.
Instead of wealth, He extolled being poor in spirit.
In place of power, He preached humility and forgiveness.
He would be famous but it was because He proclaimed His gospel of forgiveness, of love and of service to others.

“Lord, bless my tongue and my lips that I may proclaim your Word. Bless me with courage and strength that I may do your work.”

Jesus went around all of Galilee,
teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom,
and curing every disease and illness among the people.
Matthew 4:23
