Lessons from a Chrysanthemum

November's flower is the Chrysanthemum. While the color orange is not a color liked by most people, God's color palette is unmatched and the bright or deep orange of leaves, flowers, and pumpkins in Autumn is truly beautiful. Here are two lessons we can learn from a Chrysanthemum.

1. Unity

Have you ever taken a moment to look at a Chrysanthemum? It has a vast amount of petals, also known as florets, that all come together to form the beautiful bloom. Isn't that like the Church? We are all unique and individuals, but we come together to form the body of Christ, the Church. We all have different appearances, talents, skills, personalities, and duties but as the body of Christ, we are to be of one mind, a unity of believers.
