>Becoming a masterpiece

>Did you know that Michaelangelo’s David was made from a piece of marble so ruined it was deemed of no value by other artists? This is what I just read in Dick Staub’s book, About You. There are two parts of this that blow me away. First that artist have to, usually because of cost, work with rubbish to make their art. These are the prophet’s of our age and they are left with ordinary means, often less then ordinary.

Second what a beautiful picture of God’s kingdom. Anyone who thinks of themselves as rubbish and unworthy is exactly who God turns into David. In my own life I recognize God is working with a mess, weak and fragile. The place of faith is believing that there is a David under there and to live in that.
