Love and the Lilies
Song of Solomon 2:16 My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.
I think one of the books of the Bible that may not be so understood is Song of Solomon.
The meaning of "Song", is a love letter between King Solomon and his "Beloved" wife. Although, he had many wives; in that time it was allowed for a man to have many wives; the "Shulamite" was the love of his life. But there's another meaning to this book.....it is a letter that shows the love that the Lord has for His people and the love that His people has for Him.
The photo above shows a white lily that grows in my garden. When I look at this lily, it reminds me of this verse.
