Lessons from Sunflowers

Posted by Susanna

Have you ever admired the beauty of sunflowers? The brilliant yellow pedals, the life giving seeds, and the tall green stems with large green leaves. All were created by the magnificient Creator of the universe. Sunflowers have many things that we can learn from them.

It is evident that sunflowers keep their faces turned to the sun. This is an encouragment to me to keep my eyes on the Son of God, our gracious Saviour. He is trustworthy, and He wants us to trust Him with every aspect of our daily lives. He knows our past, our future, and what we are going through today. We must follow the example of sunflowers and keep our focus on the Son.

Sunflowers are servants. They give their lives for others. They provide pollen for the bees. In dying, they not only drop their seeds so that more sunflowers can be given life, but they also provide protein-rich food for the birds. We as Christians, need to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, giving our lives to God, and becoming true servants, who are faithful in all things.

Sunflowers give glory to God by doing exactly what they were designed to do. They stand tall and look to the sun. They don’t try to hide in the grass and turn purple: They were not made to be violets. They are yellow sunflowers. We don’t need to be afraid of what other people think. All that matters is that we do exactly what God wants us to do. He created us to be exactly who we are for a reason.

I hope that you have the same appreciation for sunflowers that I have. Keep looking to the Son of God!
