The word for today is creativity!
This word is formed by two concepts: activity and create.
In other words, the creativity of an individual is his ability to act in order to create.
Most of the people are no longer involved in creating new things but in criticizing things and situations that already exist.
Criticizing is easy but, it is challenging to create.
Criticizing is demagogic and useless while creating is both pragmatic and useful.
Those who control us have a vested interest to ensure that we do not create but that we adapt to what they have created for us.
In other words, drowning our ability to create has, as its ultimate objective, the control of our actions thus leaving many in mediocrity.
This is one of the reasons why I can not understand how many intelligent people do not believe in creation but belligerently they believe in evolution.
We were created to create in our time! In our uniqueness, we must understand that we are responsible for our own life. We need to control our life through creativity and not accept it the way it is.
From the individual life to the family and social life, we are called to create the coordinates that guide our actions.
Our creativity determines our uniqueness. I wonder if those around us are aware of our uniqueness or think of us as ordinary people, which is the result of an outdated model we are conforming due to the lack of commitment, determination and, therefore, creativity.
That’s why we face obstacles. They exist to leverage our creativity. Who gives up in the midst of trials and obstacles kills creativity.
Personally, I think that one of the many examples of creativity in the history of the world that strikes me most is the cross of Jesus of Nazareth.
The Bible teaches that God is pure and holy and that He cannot, by his own nature, coexist with what is unclean.
It teaches also that men are by nature impure and, therefore, incompatible with the holiness of God. This, however, does not stop the action of God who, above all else loves us and wants to connect with us, His creatures.
The creativity of God consist in becoming a man, live a Holy and perfect life and die as the last of the impure and sinful men. Jesus died for you and me!
God does not see our impurities because Jesus is dying for our impurities and sins .
So God is holy, but at the same time, through Jesus now has the ability to connect with us and let us know what is the life He has designed for each of us.
Being creative requires sacrifice, patience, humiliation, criticism, but it’s worth it when we reach our final purpose.
If our creativity is atrophying, you and I live in boredom and mediocrity.
Let’s react and let’s face the obstacle with the creativity which each of us has been endowed.
What a joy to discover that we were created to create!
What a satisfaction to understand how much potential we have to leave our own mark in this world as the result of our creativity.
May this new week be a rematch of the awareness of our creativity!
