Today’s Bible passages are: Exodus 36, John 15, Proverbs 12, and Ephesians 5

Exodus 36By Kendra Roberts

Today’s art is a response to all four of the day’s passages. Kendra explains:

The embellishment and coupling of the tabernacle curtains in Exodus 36 inspired me to thread together all of today’s Scripture selections. Some references are symbolic, others are obvious. Can you make the connections?

From Exodus 36:

He made the veil of blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen; with cherubim skillfully worked into it he made it. (verse 35)

From John 15:

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” (verses 1-2)

From Proverbs 12:

No one is established by wickedness,
but the root of the righteous will never be moved. (verse 3)

 

Whoever is wicked covets the spoil of evildoers,
but the root of the righteous bears fruit. (verse 12)

 

Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil,
but those who plan peace have joy. (verse 20)

From Ephesians 5:

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (verses 1-2)

 

…for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true)… (verses 8-9)

 

…for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says,

“Awake, O sleeper,
and arise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.” (verse 14)

Today’s Question: What connections do you see from among today’s passages?

Born in Indiana, raised in Ohio, she now resides in the (dry) heat of the Arizona desert. When she and her husband moved to Arizona from Ohio in 2008, they packed only what would fit into their small sedan, making sure to save space for a nifty 1960’s green plastic elephant planter. Kendra holds a B.A. in History from Miami University. Recently she became an RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) through Yahweh Yoga, a Christian yoga studio in Chandler, Arizona. It is her wholehearted desire to follow Christ wherever he leads—she stopped believing in coincidence a long time ago.
