You Were Created To Be A Creative

I was listening to the Freakonomics Radio podcast the other day. It’s always an interesting listen, even when they discuss subjects and positions I don’t agree with.

The latest episode was about having babies, creating life. Evidently we’re projected to peak in work population around the year 2050, when we will begin coming back in the opposite direction.

One of the interesting ideas was that families that lost children in the terrible tsunami a few years ago were more likely to have children than those who did not.

Evidently, we’re made to create.

Many of you who read this blog are “creatives”, people who are compelled to create art of some sort. It may be through writing or some other endeavor. Many of love to sit down with nothing and finish with something.

Here’s the rub, though.

You are a creative. It doesn’t matter if you’re a writer, painter or not.

My wife, Jan, is creative in many ways. She is good at organization, neatness and babies. She almost a baby whispers. I’m good at none of these things.

Others may be creative in gardening, woodworking or evangelism. You name it, and someone is creative. We all are in one way or another.

This shouldn’t surprise us.

We were created by a creative. Or should I say THE Creative.

We were made in His image. We carry a spark of that original fire within us. We should be creative in the way that He has made us creative.

So, go out. Today. Be creative. Glorify God through all of your creative means.

    Good challenge. So often we think creativity is reserved for the arts. Everyone should strive to be creative. Laziness gets in the way of us doing things in new and inspiring ways.

    I’d love to be creative with my bike today but not in close to zero weather. I’ll have to do that at home somehow.
