OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33. Sure we have heard this verse many times but it is still true no matter how often you hear it. We all want to have success in what we are doing. If our artwork is not working out right it may be because we are not motivated by seeking and glorifying God in it. Remember to ask God for guidance. Ask yourself and God how you can use art for him or more specifically the project you are working on at the time. If you put God first in art, hobbies, work, relationships and whatever else he will bless you.
