The Eschatology of Piano Lessons

A quote from Bradley Green’s The Gospel and the Mind:

Love views something or someone in terms of the future. A loving parent listening to a child clunk out notes on the piano hears something greater than the discordant tones, bad rhythm, and heavy-handed attack that would assault a stranger’s ears. The parent has a vision or hope (we might say an eschatological vision) of what the child is capable of and what might actually be the case one day.
