Precious

Jim Garrison's avatar Jim Garrison

This sculpture deals with the relationship we have with the things that we hold as precious as well as those that hold us as precious. There are many people and things that are precious to me; and thankfully, many people who see me a precious. There have also been things over the years, some even harmful, that I have held as precious that I shouldn't have. "What do you hold precious, and how does it impact you?", "Who has held you as precious and to what impact?" "As you come to Him, the living stone rejected by men, but chosen by God and precious to Him- you also like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in scripture it says, "See I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in Him will never be put to shame." 1 Peter 2:4-6
