Creativity is not about me…

“Creativity is not about me. It is not about you. It is not us somehow acting like little gods, creating on our own in the same way God creates. Although he asks us to imitate him, we are not imitators of God in this dimension. The most we can hope for is to respond appropriately and creatively to who God is and what he means. Creativity is a response.

– From my morning reading in “Scribbling in the Sand – Christ and Creativity” by Michael Card.

Creativity is a response.  It is a response to beauty.  It is a response to love.  It is a response to the image of God that He made us in.

For me, it is a way to join in the joy and glory of creation, and to invite others in.  It helps me see with different eyes, fulfill my heart, and give with both hands.
