Sunflowers

Have you ever driven by a field of sunflowers? The flowers of the plants are large and beautiful. Perhaps one of the most interesting things about sunflowers is that they follow the sun throughout the day. In the morning, the plants face east, where the sun rises. In the middle of the day, they face up toward the sky. In the evening, they face west, where the sun sets.

We can learn from sunflowers. However, rather than following the sun, we need to follow the Son. Wherever we see Jesus shining, we ought to be looking in that direction. “They looked to Him and were radiant” (Psalm 34:5).
