Bees and the lilies of the field
A Christian Science perspective
| Audobon Gardens
Jesus is known for his love of nature--his mentions of sheep, trees, and other natural features are part of his parables and teachings. Many people love his comments about the "lilies of the field" and their beauty. He says they "toil not, neither do they spin" but God takes care of them. God also takes care of the bees that make these wonders of nature possible, and our prayers can help the bee population, which is under stress at this time.
