Provider (June 2010)
Scripture: Matthew 17:24-27
12” x 28”
In this scripture, Jesus pays the temple tax showing his disciples it is good to do so. He provides for this tax through a coin that He pulls from the mouth of a fish. It shows God’s ultimate provision even for taxes. It reminds me that He will always provide for my needs even if it comes from someplace I can’t see until it happens.
Look for a fish hidden in the painting as well as a coin and a hand reaching for it. The hand is drawn in oil pastel under the paint layer.
