I was digging through some old work, and I came across this unfinished piece of art I did several months ago after hearing a sermon in church on Psalm 139. Rather than let it sit unfinished, I figured it was worth giving it some polish and putting it out there for you all to see. It should be noted that if you’re not familiar with the Bible or the American evangelical church scene in general, you probably won’t be able to appreciate this as much.
In case you’re wondering, Psalm 139 was written by King David and is essentially a song about God’s omniscience. Probably the most well-known part is found in verses 13-14:
For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
(Psalm 139:13-14, ESV)
The above cartoon was actually inspired by the last part of the Psalm:
Search me, O God, and know my heart!
Try me and know my thoughts!
And see if there be any grievous way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting!
(Psalm 139: 23-24, ESV)
I’ve titled this post “Church Humor: Part 1” because there’s another unfinished cartoon in my files inspired by a church experience.
Hope you enjoyed today’s post. Look for part 2 in the near future.
God bless, and good night!
