TFT: The Rose, the Lark, and the Sun

The Rose, the Lark and the Sun

When God formed the rose, He said: “Thou shalt flourish and spread thy perfume.” When He commanded the sun to emerge from chaos, He added: “Thou shalt enlighten and warm the world.” When He gave life to the lark, He enjoined upon it to soar and sing in the air. Finally, He created man; and told him to love. And seeing the sun shine, perceiving the rose scattering its odors, hearing the lark warble in the air, how could man help loving?

–Alexander Grun

(1 John 4:19) We love Him because He first loved us.
