31 Days: Why Create? (Day 3)

31 days

So in talking about creativity, before I jump in with making time and planning ahead and such the big question is … Why create? Why is creativity important? Why is it something I feel the desire to talk about for 31 days?

There is a lot that could be said for this answer. I believe the expression of creating makes you feel free and accomplished. In my own life I’ve seen how renewing it can be. We create to make beauty out of ugliness or nothingness. There are 1,000 other similar things that could be said.

But ultimately, we create to imitate our Creator. God made beauty out of nothing. He continually makes beauty and redemption out of the ugliness of our sin. In art, you make something exist that didn’t exist before- sound familiar? God created the world and us out of the deep nothingness.

So when we create, we can know Him better. We can be more aware of ourselves and who God is to us… that is if we let it. Praying that you let your creative spirit point you to the True Creator.
