When in preaching I am expositing a "non-feel-good" text, I am prone to point out, in Chandleresque fashion, that this is not the sort of Bible verse they put on a coffee mug to sell at the Christian bookstore. There were quite a few of those in our Galatians series, for instance, what with all that accursed-ness and admonitions to self-castration.
Yesterday I received from one of our church members (Amy) one of my favorite Christmas presents ever, pictured below.
The art on the mug is Amy's hand-painted rendering of one of my wife Becky's photographs. Along the bottom of the painting is inscribed a Bible verse. Ezekiel 41:23 to be specific. Because that's not a verse they put on coffee mugs. Love it!
