Do you think of yourself as a creative person? For some people, creativity oozes out of them, and for others, it’s hard.
Remember the finger-painting projects in kindergarten? Everyone was an artist – your mama said so.
As we got older, our gifts and talents began to emerge. Some people have mad computer and analytic skills – I’m not one of them.
Others have been blessed with creativity, whether it be in the world of dance, photography, video, or music.
As believers, we are all given spiritual gifts,
“God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.'”1 Peter 4:10
However, God gives each person gifts and talents that He desires us to use for His glory.
Even non-believers have gifts and talents, they just haven’t used them yet to glorify God.
I came across the video of Ben Folds, who composed an orchestral arrangement in ten minutes.
Ben Folds was a judge on The Sing-Off where Pentatonix was discovered; that was my introduction to him. He hears with perfect pitch, and he loves doing what he does.
Whether we craft the next opus, design workspaces that matter, heal the hurting, or take care of your family – you are using the gifts and talents God has given you.
Creativity looks different for each one of us, and I encourage you to use your creativity today to give God the glory He deserves.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for creating the universe that was the ultimate creative act. Please help me to use the creativity you have instilled in me to bring glory to you today. Amen!
