Advent Illustrated – 2nd December

I found today’s prompt really difficult: Good and Evil (Genesis 3)

scrabble

I didn’t want to draw an apple, or simply contrast something good with something bad – because in my experience moral choices are always more complex than that. And since I tend to draw in black and white, I didn’t want to use this as a contrast. So I tried focusing on the process of choice.

We often don’t get any choice about the hand we’re dealt, but we do sometimes have the choice about what we do with it, and how we play it.

For the ‘do’ ‘go’ ‘live’ one I was thinking about how Jesus uses those words in the commentary around the Good Samaritan: ‘Do this and you will live’ and ‘Go and do likewise’.
