Tired of toil and spin

Consider the lilies of the field. They do not toil, neither do they spin. Yet Solomon in all his splendor was never dressed like one of these. Matt. 6:28-29.

Even the act of considering requires us to step away from our own working and making. All our efforts at self improvement and self-beautification are shoddy, tacky knock offs of the Creator’s own work. Rather than toiling and spinning to make ourselves look beautiful, successful, or even spiritual, we can simply consider ourselves in the context of Who He Is and let His care and nurture of us produce authentically beautiful results.

Lord, dress me. You’ve seen what happens when I try to dress myself and it’s not always pretty.
