While I am fully aware that I haven’t done a Banksy Wednesday for well over a year now, I saw this and couldn’t resist posting it! I have no way of guaranteeing that it is an original Banksy (though I’m kind of thinking that it is!) Even if it’s not, you can’t deny that it’s both topical and comical:
Go on…you thought I’d forgotten didn’t you?!
OK, well I guess I kinda did! However, better late than never, here’s this Wednesday’s Banksy. Hope it has the desired effect of making you scratch your head and ask yourself: “hmm…what the dickens does this actually mean?”
As usual, feel free to post your comments.
More than ever I’m persuaded that Jesus Christ is the only hope for this hopeless generation. He is the only One who can give us a future to believe in, to live for and to cling to!
This poignant piece of street art is such a tragically accurate portrayal of where so many kids are at today and, as such, it breaks my heart. However, at the same time it makes me so grateful to Jesus for the power of His saving grace – “No future” is not an emotion I’m ever going to have to endure, because of the gospel that saved me:
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
I love this week’s Banksy cos it could almost be a portrait of me and Boaz (my 7stone freak-of-nature dog). He’s been at my side as I’ve walked the streets for over 9 years now and has been a fantastic companion to me. In many ways he has been my best friend. He’s listened in on hours of my heart-felt prayers, and when life’s been hard, he’s brought a smile to my lips more times than I can remember.
Therefore, this week’s Banksy is dedicated to Boaz!
