Though That Path Might Be Steep…

This artwork is based on these passages from the book of Matthew: 5: 1-16, 5: 43-48, 7: 1-6, 7: 13-14 and 7: 21- 23. The journey of faith to the kingdom of God can be a difficult uphill battle. Fortunately, our Heavenly Father is always there and helps us along the way.
Be the Light

Jesus said in Mathew chapter 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world… let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” This metaphor of light only makes sense against a background of darkness such as our ignorance and rejection of the light.
A Now Snowy Ditch

My Artwork shows a snowy ditch that was once littered with trash but was cleaned by someone. It reminded me of the passage Mathew 6:1 which spoke to me as he was not “practicing [his] righteousness in front of others to be seen” but was just doing something good.
Where Treasure Lies
Hayley Ng @hayley.n5
We often tangle ourselves in material treasures and forget that there is more to life than what we possess. In Matthew 6:19-21, it says that one should store their treasures in heaven so they may not be destroyed. My most valuable possession isn’t something physical, but rather something I will have to wait for.
“Will He not much more clothe you – you of little faith?”

Worry and anxiety are rampant in our daily lives. Sometimes it feels like we can’t help it with all that is going on. Yet Jesus, through the passage in Matthew 6: 25-33 teaches us ways to reframe how we see our needs, our place, and God’s care for us.
Stacked Up Foundation

Reinterpreting the passage about building your house on a rock (Matthew 7:24-27) I reflected on texts which I read for regular entertainment, inspiration, and engagement. Visualizing what I build my life on, this art piece is a reminder of the ongoing strive for stability.
