And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
All Commentaries on Matthew 6:29 Go To Matthew 6
Theophylact of Ochrid
He shames us not only by the birds, which lack reason, but also by the lilies, that wither. For if God adorned the lilies in such a manner, without any necessity to do so, how much more will He fulfill our own need for clothing? He shows that though you go to great lengths, you are not able to be adorned as beautifully as the lilies. Even Solomon the most wise and splendid, with all his kingdom at his disposal, could not array himself in such a manner.
