Spend Time with a Masterpiece

Spend time with a masterpiece and you’ll discover something inescapable: You’re made for Heaven.

Spend time with a masterpiece and this truth might feel like hope.

Spend time with a masterpiece and you might have a sense that something here is true, that something here is right, that justice and real love are possible.

It’s this feeling of significance that makes an art museum feel like a church and a live performance of Handel’s “Messiah” sound like corridors of Heaven itself.

But, not any creative endeavor can affect us like this. Only a masterpiece can deliver you from the wandering emptiness of irrelevance.

Only a masterpiece can leave you breathless with a want for Heaven.
