Solomon in All His Glory


Consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow:
they toil not, neither do they spin:
and yet I say unto you,
that even Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one of these.

Matthew 8:28-29, KJV

Jakesprinter‘s challenge: B/W. The lushness of the lily’s colouring tends to overshadow its sensuous shape. One more reason to try B/W occasionally.

P.S. It suddenly strikes me that the verse begins: “And why take ye thought for raiment?”
I wonder whether Christian nudists (if there are any) take these verses to mean Jesus thought humans, like lilies, don’t need clothes, but are beautiful the way God made them?
