Dockstader, Samantha. "What More Could I Have Done for my Vineyard?", 2018.


This art piece is based off of the scripture Jacob 5:41. I love the allegory of the olive tree because I think it shows how deeply Heavenly Father loves us. The verse that I highlighted in my piece shows the Lord of the Vineyard weeping over losing one of his trees. The question "What could I have done more for my vineyard?" shows how hard he works to nourish us, strengthen us, watch over us, and how much he cares for our wellbeing. It grieves him that he should lose any one of us.
