Scripture: "Why worry about clothes? You like lilies of the field, how they grow." (Matthew June 28) *

Once there was a Christian planted an olive tree. He prayed: "O God, it needs a good call soft water was absorbed by the root hair. Find moisture down rain." God to rain down. He prayed: "O God, my tree needs sunlight, daylight I pray to it." Then scattered rain clouds ended, God gave it light. He then prayed: "O God, and now it needs to cream to firm it is organized." Behold, the young plants growing on a thin layer of frost cover indeed. But by the evening, it was dead.

So he went to see a Christian, told his own strange experience. The Christian said: "I planted a small tree. Behold, how long now flourish. I do not speak for my tree a little heart, just give it to its God. Made it God knows it needs far more than ignorant people like me. So I do not set conditions to God, suggestions, methods. I prayed: O God ?, it needs to give it, whether it is wind, rain, frost, is snow, sunlight, what ... you must know it, they will certainly supply it ?."

"Spirit of the LORD who had instructed, or as his counselor teach him?" (Isaiah 40:13) **

Editor's Notes:

* I assume the writer translated from a Chinese version. More familiarly, using the 2001 English standard version: Matthew 6:28 - And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,

** 2001 English standard version: Isaiah 40:13 - Who has measured the Spirit of the LORD, or what man shows him his counsel?
