Acropolis Flowers

Day5_FlowersOfTheAcrop As we try to continuously bring alive the people, places, and culture of the Biblical text, the small things are not to be ignored.  While people of those days are millennia away from us, and we may not fully understand their culture and ancient history, they were people, just like you and me.  When a Biblical writer speaks of flowers, the message they intend to convey can be seen by us.  Flowers may bring to mind James 1:9-11, and the message of fading riches.  These daisies, particularly the center one with yellow and white, adorn the ancient rocks of the Athens acropolis, with the same colors now as they would have displayed in ancient times.
