I confess I envy those who have artistic hands, a flare for crafts and the innate ability to create masterpieces. Walks through antiques stores and resale shops inspire me. Furniture was not only solid; makers handcrafted pieces with intricate carvings and added to the value. Fine paintings catch my eye and I wonder how many hours the artists labored over the canvas and what he or she would think about their work ending up among discarded memories. Creativity is rare in a Xerox copy world.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me (Psalm 51:10 NAS).” The Lord is at work in each one of His children; His results will be flawless. Our Creator does not produce replicas or assembly line lifeless robots; He painstakingly transforms tarnished lives into temples to reflect His glory. He places us in the perfect light of His word, smooths out every wrinkle and erases every sin. You too may be a MASTER-piece!
