This sculpture depicts a "urial" sheep which were native in Israel at the time of Abraham.




Provided was the strength

to carry wood and flame and knife.

Provided was an only son,

and the faith to take his life.


Provided was a promise,

The child would make a chosen race.

Provided was a ram

to take the sinner's place.


Provision's not the point

when God moves to meet a need,

anymore than planting's point

is to simply bury seed.


Provision turns our eyes

to their maker up above

and helps define his character

as a faithful God of love.


Provided is a lamb,

sent to take the sinner's place,

provided we accept in faith

the offer of his grace.
