I found this quote on “The Small Things Blog” and it struck me. I have never really thought about it this way, but creativity is more than just crafting or art. It is about man’s God given ability to create things…lots of things, from scrapbooking to designing the newest car.
I may not be an artist, hairstylist, or fashion designer by trade, but I still need to be creative at my job, and that is the piece that I don’t always think about. We have all been given some talent that we are really good at. It’s a matter of discovering what that creative talent is and using it to its fullest potential.
So today I thought I would just share this quote with you. I hope you find it as thought provoking as I did at the time….may you have a Creative weekend!
“So we are, on a finite level, people who can create. Why does man have creativity? Why can man think of so many things in his mind, and choose, and then bring forth something that other people can taste, smell, feel, hear, and see? Because man was created in the image of a Creator. Man was created that he might create. It is not a waste of man’s time to be creative. It is not a waste to pursue artistic or scientific pursuits in creativity, because this is what man was made to be able to do. He was made in the image of a Creator, and given the capacity to create- on a finite level of course, needing to use the materials already created- but he is still the creature of the Creator.”
