Many Christians today remember the spiritual mentor and writer Francis De Sales, whose Introduction to the Devout Life includes one of my favorite descriptions of what it means to guide others in spiritual growth.

On behalf of God, we paint the portrait of Jesus (the model of devotion to the Father) for those who wish to know him. We pray that this work of detailed portraiture so deepens our love for our subject that God gives us the desire of our hearts.

That’s cool.

Keep painting.
