Peter’s Recipe

2 Peter 1:5 Mixed Media 10 x 10

I wonder if Peter liked to cook.  I was reading 2 Peter 1 the other day and two things got my attention.  First was the word “virtue”.  Second was a long descriptive list of things a Christian should “add.”  I felt as though Peter was checking off a long recipe list of ingredients and I visualized him measuring out a spoonful of this and a spoonful of that.

Here is the scripture 2 Peter 1:5-7:

“For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith virtue; and to virtue, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.”

WHEW!  That’s quite a list. The whimsical side of me see’s Peter words as a spoonfuls of ingredients so I made this mixed media piece to memorialize Peter’s List.  These words inspire me. I want to get a firm understanding what each word means, and the word virtue captured my imagination and inspired me to make more Queens!

I just finished making my set of queens as an interpretation of the 10 Virtues for the Modern Age.  Now I want to make a 2 Peter 1 set they will be:

Queen of Faith                                       Queen of Goodness

Queen of Knowledge                            Queen of Self Control

Queen of Perseverance                       Queens of Mutual Affection

Queen of Godliness                              Queen of Love

I am really excited to explore 2Peter 1:5-7 and hope we can learn something together!
