I saw the angel in the marble, and I carved until I set him free. (Michelangelo)

Artists, whether in sculpture, oil painting, music, or some other kind of genius, have a special insight into their “angel.” It sets them apart from other dabblers in the arts. An even more important gift may be the ability to see potential in people, what they could offer if they were only trained and encouraged. We would all do well to find and develop such talent.

I have given ability to all the skilled workers to make everything I have commanded you. (Exodus 31:6)
