Masterpiece

In the art world, there are masters. My favorite has always been Monet. And there are many you can discover at art galleries. Years ago, people used to learn a trade from a master. Master plumbers. Master electricians. Master carvers. Master designers. Someone who had a skill and could create and teach others; whether creating acrylic paintings or new pipelines, they were seen as the people who were the best at what they did.

These masters used tools: art palettes and brushes, wrenches and screwdrivers, saws and chisels. They used materials: watercolor paints, pipes, wood. Molding, refining, and improving until they had a masterpiece; it could take hours, days, months, years to complete.

You are a masterpiece of God’s. You are a walking piece of art, made by the ultimate Master.

Psalm 139:13-16 says,

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
