Good Morning March 13

Beauty is a quality of God. Whether it is in music or art, a field of wild flowers or a sunset, beauty points to the Lord. The creative desire that is in, I think, almost all people, is the desire to make something that is beautiful, functional, helpful, or in some way improves our surroundings. This is of God. We may not consider ourselves artists, or even very skilled at many things, but wherever we seek to make or do something good, that is a desire from God, and honoring of God. This is not pantheism where people says that God is in everything. But God, Himself, is beautiful, and wherever there is true beauty, whether in a well prepared meal, or a great symphony, that desire to create is from God. Let us give thanks and rejoice in our God of the greatest beauty.
