I thought you might be interested in the details of the design of the cover.
The color of the cover appears to be a dark brown, but actually it is a deep dark burgandy with the lower 1/3rd of the cover being a deep navy blue. Burgandy signifies the royality of Christ’s Kingdom, while the blue implies Eternity and that Christ’s Kingdom will reign throughout Eternity.
The letters are silver, with the word “Heart” being in gold. This was done to put emphasis on the heart and the condition of the heart. This is also taken from Proverbs 25:11, “A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” You have heard of people having a “heart of gold” meaning that they truly cared about other people and their lives were living proof that they were loving, caring people. Therefore, the emphasis of this book is about the condition of the heart.
There are three crosses, with the middle cross standing out from the other two crosses. Our lives should be centered on the cross of Jesus and our relationship with Him. There is a cross on the right and another cross on the left. The message here is that we have a choice in life. The cross on the right stands for those who have choosen to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior and to live a life as His follower and to live with Him for Eternity in Heaven. The cross on the left stands for the non-believers who do not believe in Jesus as the only begotten Son of God. This group of people, according to the Bible, will spend Eternity in Hell. Each of us individually must choose where we will spend Eternity, but we all will spend Eternity in either Heaven or Hell. As the two thieves that were crucified with Jesus, one chose to believe and the other refused, but they both had the same opportunity to believe.
There was a lot of thought given to the design of the book and each part of the cover carries special meaning. I trust you will see that as you look over the cover of THE HEART OF FINANCIAL MATTERS, SEEKING A SERVANT’S HEART.
