consider the lilies

I recently ran across this article on the Ravi Zacharias website via my favorite blog, A Holy Experience.

I especially like this quote from artist Makoto Fujimura

“Pragmatism, legalism, and greed cannot comprehend the power of ephemeral beauty.  The opposite of beauty is not ugliness; the opposite of beauty is legalism.  Legalism is hard determinism that slowly strangles the soul. Legalism injures by giving pragmatic answers to our suffering.”

and I can so relate to the poem in the beginning of the article about the man video-taping his vacation!

And speaking of Ann Voskamp at A Holy Experience… today she is giving us a gift… check it out.

This week, may we have eyes to see all the good and perfect gifts he so freely gives to us.
Be encouraged!
