Ignoring Beauty

I just read an interesting article on John Piper's website. It discussed how an amazing musician sat busking in the streets as an experiment to see if beauty could be recognized through the mundane malaise of day-to-day life. He was playing a $3.5 million instrument to a very high standard and he was virtually ignored. The article was demonstrating how easily people ignore beauty surrounding them and draws a comparison between this musician and God. Although it is not immoral to ignore the beauty created by this musician, the article was saying how it is immoral to ignore the beauty created by God. Anyway, it was an interesting article and made a valid point i think. I was going to quote it all on here, but decided it was too long.
