A Message from Modern Art
A fool has no delight in understanding, but in expressing his own heart. – Proverbs 18:2
Mistake 1: We went to the art show.
Mistake 2: We expected to see art.
I looked like a confused dog. At least it wasn’t lewd. But that was about the best I could say.
The artist had left behind a million dollars in paintings but little of true value. Her art expressed her feelings, her books expressed her views, her life was lived for her pleasure.
But to what end?
Artists grope to express the ugliness of sin and self and the beauty of God – though sometimes they acknowledge Him not as God. They use their irrevocable God-given talents to merely copy man when tragically they could have copied God.
A wise man delights in understanding and in expressing God’s working.
Why express my flawed thinking, shallow feelings, or selfish dreams when God is the source of perfect thinking, intense, holy feelings, and worthwhile dreams?
