Casting Shadows

...Legend has it that Michaelangelo painted with a brush in one hand and a candle in the other to prevent his shadow from covering his masterpiece in progress.
When the believers in Corinth were feeling arrogant, Paul warned them "that no flesh should glory in His presence," and reminded them of what Jeremiah said, "He who glories, let him glory in the Lord."
If we want to display the masterpiece of God's glory on the canvas of our lives, we need to make sure the shadow of our ego isn't getting in the way of a great painting in progress! ~Maria's thoughts~
* inspirations from the Bible, today's "Daily Bread" mixed with a little Tolle.
*Painting: Jeremiah, by Michaelangelo
