Did you hear about the art theft on Monday at a small museum in Zurich? Three masked thieves with guns snatched four oil paintings by Cezanne, Degas, van Gogh and Monet. Read about it here. It’s easier to steal—or, for that matter, to destroy—than to create. I’m praying they don’t get away with it.
On Monday, I gave you a few sentences from Tim Keller’s essay in It Was Good: Making Art to the Glory of God (Square Halo Books). I promised to give the next sentence to complete Keller’s thought. Here it is:
“We need Christian artists because we are never going to reach the world without great Christian art to go with great Christian talk.”
Whether you consider yourself a Christian artist or an artist who happens to be a Christian, use your gift to the best of your ability. Do whatever you do with excellence, and don’t let anyone steal your desire to create.
