Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. (Pablo Picasso, 20th century Spanish artist)

Do you remember encouraging your crayon-wielding child to “stay in the lines”? Have we sometimes unintentionally restricted budding artists from experimenting as they learn how to develop their creative skills? Imagination may be the most important factor in creating good art. The young learner no doubt needs our encouragement more than our criticism.

In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. (Romans 12:6)
