Then the LORD said, Thou hast had pity on the gourd for which thou hast not laboured, neither didst thou make it grow; which came up in a night and perished in a night:
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin;
Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
I have sent you to reap that upon which ye bestowed no labour; others laboured, and ye have entered into their labours.
Do not labour to be rich; cease from thine own wisdom.
So then it is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that has mercy.
