August Series: When we look outside and see the beautiful world around us, we’re reminded that God is great, powerful, and creative. Jesus used creativity in the way He told parables, performed miracles, and helped His followers understand more about what it means to be part of God’s kingdom. We’re created in God’s image and can solve problems, create art and music, and design skyscrapers high into the sky. When we create, we reflect the image of God to the world around us!
God created you to be creative.
Creation ● Genesis 1-2:3
Looking around at creation, we can’t help but notice God’s creativity. From nothing, God spoke the universe into existence. With no detail left out, creation shows us the brilliant creativity of a God Who is big enough to create the world and personal enough to love us no matter what. When we put our creativity into action, we can not only discover the wonder of creation, but also how we can reflect the image of God!
Engage in everyday moments together this week:
- Morning Time: As your kid starts their day, tell them about something you’ve seen them do or say lately that showed creativity.
- Meal Time: At a meal, have everyone at the table answer this question: “How are you creative?” (Keep in mind, creativity is more than just being artistic.)
- Drive Time: While on the go, ask your kid: “What is the most creative thing you’ve seen lately?”
- Bed Time: Pray for each other: “God, please help us see how You made us with creativity to not only create things, but also to be creative in how we face challenges and love other people.”
