We are “made by Jesus.” Our love and compassion come from him.

One time, Picasso, the famous painter, wanted a carpenter to make a special chair for his home.

The carpenter asked the painter to make a sketch of it. When Picasso picked up the chair, he asked the carpenter, how much do I owe you? The carpenter said nothing. Just sign the sketch. Picasso signed it, made by Picasso, and the carpenter sold it for $300,000.

That’s what Jesus has done for us. When we love, show compassion, forgive, and are kind, we ought to wear a sign that says, made by Jesus. That would heal our self-righteousness and our broken hearts.

I’m Steve Brown. You think about that.
