METAPHOR:

All flesh is grass.

Think of the connotations:

  • grass is everywhere
  • it self-seeds
  • we walk all over it
  • it can be cut (mown) down
  • It is an insignificant plant

1 Peter 1:24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass.

The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever.

And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
