“Make today your masterpiece.” -John Wooden
Whether be a painter, writer, musician, or actor then you understand that any artist wants to produce art that will inspire others, perhaps even help them. Eventually it could earn them recognition, but most of the time that’s not why they do it. Hopes of achieving recognition wouldn’t be enough to drive them for excellence day in and day out; most artists produce art simply for the love of producing art. As Christians, recognition may or may not come, but likewise we shouldn’t live the life we do for hopes of achieving it. Otherwise we may be disappointed. Instead let’s collectively decide that we will live for God simply and completely because we love God. Thus everything we do throughout our day today and every day corresponds with this.
Let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth (1 John 3:18, ESV).
