1 Kings 7:19 
The capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were in the shape of lilies, four cubits high. (NIV)

And the capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were shaped like lilies, six feet high. (CSB)

The detail and artistry displayed in the Temple, its grounds, and furnishings are truly inspirational. This verse is easily overlooked with all of the other notes related to this massive project. Ponder the purpose of these lilies. They are forty feet up on top of the pillars. No one was ever going to see them from above.

The craftsmanship and beauty of these lilies were extravagant. Yet they were not placed there for the benefit of those on the ground looking up. This artwork was only seen by God. 

There are some songs sung only to God in the privacy of one’s own worship.

There are prayers heard only by God from the depths of hearts seeking what only God can provide. 

There are commitments carried out by dedicated souls who only communicate with God about their paths. 

Where is there unseen beauty in your life? 

Where is there private communion with God and God alone?

Where is there service seen only by God?

Where are the lilies in your life?

I will cultivate adornment visible only by God.

Our Father, in a world far too eager to tell all of its secrets, give us the grace to dwell in wonder and beauty known only to the two of us in private communion. Set this anchor in our souls that we may express your goodness in everything we do and say. Amen.
