Simple? Yep. Deep? Yep. Irrefutable? Yep. Subject to scorn? Unfortunately.
Apart from faith, prove to me the scent of the lily of the valley exists. Where is your d_mn proof? Can you touch it? See it? Feel it? Perhaps explain it to a friend, describe it? Yeah, I know, you can’t do it. Maybe if you tasted it? Ehcck, no, that doesn’t work too well now does it?
Ah yes, the essence of faith, bottled, and proof of the Creator. Oh how the common flower condemns unbelief and arrogance in chastising things not seen. Oh how the Creator has seen fit to employ nature to speak of His eternal power and Godhead. Oh how the emerging perennial flower that is born once more from the frozen earth testifies of life, again.
The times. The seasons. The voice of nature utters the crescendo of that little flower that preaches the gospel of perpetual goodness. Yet, the flower fades, as do we all, life a leaf, but….the word of God endures forever.
But what is the soul of that flower? Its scent or its body? Humans have no soul eh? Hmm, appears you will argue foolishly with the lily, and lose, every time.
Does not nature itself teach you? Ah, yyyep. Thank God for the lessons of life through nature, clearly seen that we may be without excuse, and be certain in our knowledge of Him. And heck, I did not even touch the chiefest among ten thousand, the true lily among thorns……(THAT would fill the libraries of the world.)
Apart from faith, all we have is a mere opinion that the odor of the flower exists. C’mon, face the scent of the lily and bless God will ya. Faith is some serious evidence; don’t leave home without it. As a matter of fact, you can’t.
Apart from faith, prove to any man that the scent from the lily of the valley exists. Thus do the simple facts of life shut our mouths. Let God be true, and every man, well, a bit untruthful to deny the Creator His due. Faith, the substance of things hoped for……the evidence of things not seen.
Apart from faith, prove to me the scent of the lily of the valley exists. Well? I’m waiting. May as well stop right now, as you gotta love that evidence known as faith, because the tiny flower condemns all unbelief, for without uttering a word, lilies do not lose arguments.
