Take the Muddied but Priceless Masterpiece to the Original Artist for Restoration — A Quote by John Burke in “No Perfect People Allowed”

“If you saw a Rembrandt covered in mud, you wouldn’t focus on the mud or treat it like mud. Your primary concern would not be the mud at all — though it would need to be removed. You’d be ecstatic to have something so valuable in your care. But if you tried to clean it yourself, you might damage it. So you would carefully bring this work of art to a master who could guide you and help you to restore it to the condition originally intended. When people begin treating one another as God’s masterpiece waiting to be revealed, God’s grace grows in their lives and cleanses them.”

— John Burke, “No Perfect People Allowed”, p. 97
