Art: Orange Tree

Give your best
Orange Tree: Give your best

25th May 2016, Prismacolor on A3 cartridge paper

If God gives you an orange tree, give him your best oranges. There are plenty of oranges for you to enjoy and for you to give to others. Give God the first ripest orange, not the last rotten orange.

This was inspired by Genesis 4 where Cain and Abel gave offerings to God. God looked at Abel’s offering with favour but he didn’t look at Cain’s with favour. This spoke to me about giving God your best. It’s about attitude and gratitude. And for some reason a picture of oranges helped me understand this concept.
