FLOWERS (biblical)

Definition

Instructive references to flowers in the Bible are mainly allusions to their striking beauty, but also to their transient nature (Psalm 103:15; Isaiah 5:34; Matthew 6:28-30). Flowers therefore symbolize the impermanent character of even the most pleasant and attractive creatures in this world, compared with the changeless and eternal beauty of God.
