Be Creative!


When kids are five, they all think they can draw. By age ten, almost none of them still believe they can draw. What happens? Goofballs like you and me tell them they can’t do it.

God was a Creator before he was anything else. We serve a creative God. And since we are made “in his image,” we must be a creative people.

So be creative! Go ahead! Create! Oh, I know what you’re thinking. “I’d be more creative, but I’m waiting for inspiration, permission, reassurance, or someone to smooth the way. I’m waiting for the rest of the rules, someone to change, or wider fairways.”

You would be creative, but you figure, “I am waiting until I have more time, mutual consent, a more favorable horoscope, tomorrow, or four Aces. I am waiting for the absence of risk, someone to discover me, better instructions, Chicken Little to return, the pot to boil, or a signal from heaven. I’m waiting for shorter lines, my ship to come in, a better deodorant, the check to clear, the rates to go down, the Dow to go up, or the Iceman to cometh.”

I have a suggestion. Quit waiting and start walking. Quit thinking so much. Start creating!
