Grieving is such a hard, personal thing. I’m so glad we have Jesus to walk with us and to hold us when we just don’t have the strength to walk.
I love this artwork, too. I’m going to try something similar soon. 💙💗💜💛💚
Oh sister, I love you and your sweet loving heart so much! I am praying for your father in law and family and of course you! Repeating these promises that He goes behind and before, holding all things together.
Lovely art, but unfortunately, you missed the entire point of the Bible story. I am amazed at how many times people overlook the history of this story. The widow was taken advantage of by the Pharisees, who taught the people that they could buy forgiveness from God: they had said, with alms you purchase your salvation. She was so desperate to be forgiven that she gave all of her money away. And it doesn’t say anything about Jesus smiling. Jesus saw this corrupt system taking the last two pennies out of a widow’s pocket. Basically, it is abuse of the poor. He is demonstrating the apostate Judaism that was present in that day. Hope this gives you a new insight into that passage. Thanks for sharing your art with us!!
Interesting. I will go look at your link. John MacArthur is a good teacher. This view has been presented to me several times in various times throughout my walk with Jesus and has encouraged me when I felt I had little to give. Always learning sister. I think when we arrive in heaven, we will realize we missed the mark many times. Grace. Be blessed.
“Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. Yet they shamelessly CHEAT WIDOWS out of their property and then pretend to be pious by making long prayers in public. Because of this, they will be severely punished.”
Some one once said “we have translated the Bible into many languages but never to a creative one” and that is exactly what Illustrated Faith is striving to do; provide a place to see the bible through a creative mind.
