In 1911, the famous Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre Museum in Paris. It was missing for two years. But would you believe that during that time more people came to the museum to see the blank space than had come to view the masterpiece itself in the previous twelve years?
Of course, that sounds just like us, doesn’t it? We take for granted the masterpieces in our lives until they are gone. I, for one, need this message today. I need to be reminded to focus on the good in my life rather than the bad and spend more time appreciating all the Mona Lisas God has granted me. I’m really going to work at this today. I suggest you do the same.
