A man named Joshua Allen Harris makes art out of trash bags and places them all over New York City. He will station them over air vents to give them a sense of life. Harris has made a sea serpent, giraffe, robot and bears.

We all have met people who thought they were too bad for God to love and use in His work. Maybe you think of yourself as trash, but God sees you as His masterpiece.
