Giving From The Heart
Mixed-media, found-object assemblage
"Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
Matthew 6:21. When we treasure the things of earth, our
heart is drawn to the earth. The heart is subject not only to
gravitation, but to attraction from on High. The wings
express that the heart reaches upward, toward heaven - toward
God. The wings also symbolize freedom of choice. We can
choose to love and follow Jesus, to give our heart wings to
fly to Him, or we can choose not to.
"But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve. As for me, I will
serve the Lord." Joshua 24:15 The offering plate focuses on
giving to God. Focusing on the heart of Jesus, we can have
Christ's heart and love for humanity, expressing our own love
for the Lover of our souls through our own giving.
