Matthew 6:24 (ANIV)
[Jesus said] “No-one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.”
TIME OF DAY:
Light is from heaven, shining down on the man on the left.
Two un-named men, one holding the cross (who’s master is Jesus) & one holding money.
Matthew chapters 05:01–08:01 is called “the Sermon on the Mount” because Jesus gave it on a hillside near Capernaum, which was a city on the north coast of the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret.) This sermon probably covered several days of preaching, if not more & the content was probably repeated (at least in part) by Jesus many times, as the message contained in the sermon is central to the gospel message.
This has been quite a quick Bible Cartoon to produce! It is designed to show the contrast between someone who chooses to have Jesus as his master (represented by the figure on the left) & someone who rejects Jesus as master & covets money instead (represented by the figure on the right.)
I decided to have the man who accepts the mastery of Jesus holding a wooden cross to his chest. Notice also that a bag of money is slipping out of his hand, showing that money is NOT his master! He is bathed in the light of heaven, complete with little golden stars!
The man on the right (in contrast) is gradually being overcome with dark shadows. He is gleefully holding gold coins in his hand & has a covetous expression on his face. Indeed, I have made his face reflect the gold he desires. But the darkness is closing in around him. He doesn’t realise that the money he craves is actually his master.
