Title of drawing: "Look at the Birds" (Matthew 6:25-34)
Rainbows, stars, grains of sand, birds, flowers, bread, wine, seeds, vines and branches, fig trees, and ultimately Jesus. Throughout Scripture there are several cases where God has told us to look at something as a reminder of his promises, his character, his kingdom, and his love. God points to his creation because, when we truly learn to see it rather than assume we already know what we are looking at, it points back to him and we can hear his voice. In the sermon on the mount we are presented with salt, light, the eye, birds, wildflowers, trees, fruit, rock, and sand. In Matthew 6:26 Jesus specifically tells us to "look at the birds of the sky". I couldn't help but feel at ease and confirmed with today's drawing when I remembered that verse. God cares for us with the love of a perfect father. We can't truly see and appreciate what God has for us if we are overly concerned with getting what we want, exactly when we want it. Will we be true to our identity in Christ, be who we have been called to be and trust God to supply all our needs according to his riches in Christ?
