SOMETIMES THE WORLD GETS IT CLOSE

The Icarus Deception Has Arrived

THE ICARUS DECEPTION, by Seth Godin has been a good, insightful and personally challenging read for me. Tonight I was grabbed by how close his writing sometimes comes to aligning with the Bible. He writes,
"Your best work is a gift. Of course your work can be improved, but it is a gift first. Your generosity is more important than your perfection." (Page 165)

His words made me think of the Apostle Paul's letter to the Ephesians, where he writes,

"We are God's workmanship (His poem, artwork), created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." (Ephesians 2:10)

So, I guess the question for me, for each of us actually, is how are we going to present our gift to the world, and not just to make a name for ourselves, or to produce great art, but even more importantly honor the One who is the Great Artist?
