Grass draws life from the light. This is what makes it alive, strong, and lovely to the eye.
“There is not one little blade of grass, there is no colour in this world that is not intended to make men rejoice.” John Calvin
Grass can be found on every continent under the sun.
It’s always there, but easy to not see at all.
How do we see the grass? Is it just a patch out the front of our home? Is it something that we walk on to get somewhere more important? How can it possibly bring us joy?
Perhaps we need to see our own lives like that of a blade of grass. Fleeting, but beautiful nevertheless.
Maybe we can be inspired by how a blade of grass lives; constantly drinking in light, growing more beautiful every day.
The beauty of grass is made possible by the light. Without it, there is nothing.
A blade of grass lives only a handful of days – but those days are spent in the light, which is freely available – as it is to us.
What are we growing toward as we live our lives?
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
