You are an Artist

Luke 6: 45

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.


You are an Artist


You are an artist.  How will you paint your world today? What is your style?  Are you a realist, an impressionist, an abstract artist?  Every one of us sees our world and life around us from varied perspectives and dimensions.  Rather we paint on a canvas; we are all painting on the canvas of someone else’s soul.  What is it that we are painting through our words, our actions, our attitudes and philosophies?  Choose your colors, your medium and your style carefully for often we see the works of our artistry rendered in our children and others that we touch and influence.  One day the Master Artist will judge the works of our hands and what we have done with the creativity and expression within each of us.  He will stroll down the corridor and hallway of our life and see the gallery of the works that we have created there.  He will see the expression of who we are represented there.  How will He judge the work of our life, the artistry of our hands and the expression of our soul?  There it is represented in the mural of a life span.  Will He see Himself and His nature expressed through those works or will they be just about us?

Rather you realize it or not each of us is an artist and everyday we paint something on the canvas of our lives, as well as the lives of others.  Art is an expression of the soul.  Out of the abundance of the heart the brush will paint.  Each stroke that we make, that is guided by the master, is a stroke of life and purpose.  We paint one stroke at a time.  We don’t want to become careless, or sloppy or complacent in how we paint.  Life is too short.  Allow each stroke to be guided and mentored by the Master and make each stroke add to a portrait of life and godliness.
