This book is about heroes–men and women who God raised up to deliver Israel from its oppressors. With each new judge God raised up, the Israelites would turn to God and obey Him for a while. Eventually, they would turn back to idolatry and sin until the next judge came onto the scene. Like the Israelites, we sin and suffer. Then we repent and turn to God for a time, only to sin again.
The white arrow at the top is God’s mercy (pure light). The arrow headed down on the right represents us moving from His ways toward our own ways (sin). Because there are always consequences to sin, the arrow in the dark, messy colors and textures (and the furthest away from God) represents suffering. The last arrow symbolizes us crying out to God and repenting, which then brings us back to Him and His everlasting forgiveness and mercy.
