Christians should support the Arts and Humanities.  I often try to work some scriptural truth into my own art.  It can help drive away depression too.  One can inspire, teach, and make others feel better about life. Just look at the Van Gogh painting below...

In this painting Van Gogh does an outtake of a much older painting by Rembrandt and changed a few things.  The first thing he does is add color, a hopeful yellow.  He takes the figure of Christ out but adds the sun.  I believe Van Gogh is pointing to a messianic prophesy found in Malachi 4:2, "But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings, and you will go out and playfully jump like calves from the stall." It is a lovely eye catching work.  Some Hebrew scholars say the word translated "sun" in the text could be translated "servant".  And the "wings" refer to the tassels at the end of the robes that some wore....?   It is good to support such study.
