Flowers of the Field
I Peter 1:22-25 We are the flowers of the field; we hold our hands up like petals to the sun. A brief shining moment and then we're gone, but what have you done, what have you done? We are the flowers of the field spending our time chasing the American dream - buying the house, the car, and the perfect smile, but what does it all mean, what does it mean? Cry to the Master, cry to the King, Cry before the disaster of wasting everything, wasting everything, cry. We are the flowers of the field seeing the danger when we have to choose. But looking at how it is and what it could be, what would you lose, what would you lose? Jesus has come so that life can have real meaning. Jesus has come so that we can live beyond what's seen. Don't throw away life only chasing what is shallow- Dare to live another dream! We are the flowers of the field, but we have our time now if only briefly. So when the sun sets at the end of your day what will your life mean, what will it mean?
