“Will my flower last forever because I have a pretty one?” 

Dear Flower girl,

       You asked, “Will my flower last forever because I have a pretty one?” I think that when you get this letter that you will already know that flowers just last a little while before they wilt away. But here is what God had to say about your flower:

“Grass dies and flowers fall,
but the word of our God lasts forever.”

Isaiah 40:8

       It is a beautiful thing to know that God makes new flowers again and again. He loves beautiful things. And He loves for you to enjoy what He has made. 

       God likes flowers, too. He decorated his temple with flowers. He talks about roses and lilies in the Bible. But God teaches us a lesson with flowers. Flowers don’t live forever. People don’t either. But when we are part of  Jesus’ family, we do get to live forever. He has made a promise to us. And His words last forever.

       The next time you get a pretty flower, tell God thank you for making it, and then tell God thank you that He can make you stronger than a flower so you can live forever.
