A Servant's Heart - Work in progress
A Servant's Heart | detail | oil on canvas
So much to do and so little time. Time is truly a valuable asset. What we do with it is a measure of what is important to each of us. I've had people ask me how I find the time to paint. Usually it's not a matter of finding the time, it is that I make the time to paint. It's important to me.
The watch in the painting represents the fact that real servants make themselves available. They make the time to serve. Making ourselves available is not easy–especially making the time to serve in the right spirit. Do we serve without a hint of resentment?
Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve - Matthew 20:28
It's almost time to show you the completed "puzzle" of these detail images I've been showing you this last while. I just want to put a few finishing touches on it.
