The Speck

The Speck by Tim BakerThis is my intentionally absurd illustration of the idea found in Matthew 7:3-5, where Jesus says, “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.”  We are so quick to point out the faults others without dealing with our own first.

Gnome

Gnome by Tim Baker…or elf, or hobgoblin, or whatever you want him to be. I drew this cute little guy while visiting my folks one Christmas. That thing at the top of his staff is supposed to be just a collection of small stones but my wife thought it looked like a brain!  Oh well.

Tired

Tired by Tim BakerThis illustration is intended to convey the concept from Matthew 11:28, where Jesus says, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.”  It was done for a church near Lake Don Pedro in CA.
