Something that often helps me is to think about how we bear the image of God as we create art. At the end of each of God’s creative works, he paused and declared them “very good.”

God didn’t create junk, and if we use the tools He has given us to create junk, it is an insult to Him and His creation. As we image the Creator, we too must create works of art that are “very good.” This means, I think, works of art that are both technically good and serve to guide people to the truth. And as we approach the art of others, we must ask ourselves, “Is this ‘very good’? Did the artist adequately fulfill his duty as an imagebearer of the Creator?”
