I once heard a story about a famous preacher who was admiring a friends art collection. After staring at one particuliar work that his friend was raving about, the preacher thought to himself quietly that it didn’t seem very special. So much so he thought that perhaps a child may have painted it.

His friend told him that he had purchased that piece for over a million dollars. This time the preacher took the painting more seriously and asked who the artist was. His friend replied Pablo Picasso.’

Suddenly this painting seemed far better than he first thought and after another 5 minutes of viewing he had really started to admire it.

Afterwards the Preacher realised that the painting had value because of who the painter is. It is the creator that makes it valuable.

Don’t forget who your Creator is. God made you in his own image. You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
