And here we have another one of those well-known, well-abused scriptures as the Gospel for our Eucharist. Perhaps not so much abused, but there are separate parts within which are too often used out of the full context in a way that ignores the real lesson here.
What does a person actually worship? It seems Jesus saw the issue in his time, long before anyone had a desire for a fancier automobile! And what does the lesson of the “lilies of the field” really teach us? Guess what! It ties in with some words from a prayer we share here every week!
And in there is the real lesson, which will do much for all of us!
