The Potato Eaters” Vincent van Gogh

It is potatoes and coffee at the end of a long, exhausting, grating day, but it is the widow’s mite–offering up what little there is to give, holding nothing back for oneself, mimicking God’s offering in Jesus.

  1. Mr Fridays are not right without a dose of your art. The painting is splendid and the metaphor succinct. Hospitality given with sacrifice must truly emulate the gift of Christ on the cross. Thank you, again for making Friday special.
