Title:Trumpet Lily Golden Splendour

And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. -- Matthew 6:28-29

"Matthew 6:25-33, the text about anxiety, was certainly originally addressed to the itinerant radicals who like the birds of the air neither sow nor reap, i.e. do not do traditional men's work, and like the lilies of the field neither toil nor spin, i.e. do not do traditional women's work. But Matthew applies this text, in what it promises and what it requires, to all hearers of the Sermon on the Mount. Nowhere does he say that all disciples must become itinerant radicals, but he does make it clear that traveling in the course of proclamation is a way of life to which all are basically called." (Luz, 153)
