Blessed Are The
Llama Momma asked me to share about my experiences with the on-line bible study I'm doing.
The group is currently exploring the Sermon on the Mount, which I've heard so many times that I've lost a sense of its richness... until I did my salt pictures (see below and on my other blog) and the picture above as part of my response. Some members of the group wanted to know what the illustration means.
So, here's how I explained it...
The right side of the picture is "our world," full of all the things we want...with people adoring and serving us.
The left side of the picture is a trail of loss... the crown and apparel, the fallen Q's (our right-to-rule), as we climb the mount to meet Jesus... who waits in his loving sacrifice, to teach us how to live a life of true color.
I had fun changing the queen from a diamonds person to a queen of hearts. And though I didn't draw the queen of hearts, I implied that the heart would be her ultimate suit of destiny, as signified by the heart near the cross.
If you had to draw your response to the Sermon on the Mount, what might you draw? (see Matthew 5-7)
