Start Thinking Creatively (2)

Start Thinking Creatively (2)

“God…calls things that are not as though they were.” Ro 4:17 NIV

God sees things others don’t, and He talks about them as though they were established facts. “God…calls things that are not as though they were.” And since you are made in His image, you need to do the same. In other words, start thinking creatively. Film director Frank Capra said, “A hunch is creativity trying to tell you something.” So if you’re part of a church or a business that continually throws up obstacles to productivity, forms barriers to originality, and puts the brakes on momentum, it’s time to speak up. And if nobody will listen, it’s time to pray and ask God if you’re in the right place. An environment doesn’t just “happen,” it’s created by the people who live and work in it. People, systems, and policies either stoke the fire of creativity or put it out. Alexander the Great once visited the famed teacher Diogenes and asked whether he could do anything for him. Diogenes replied, “Only stand out of my light.” One of the best things you can do for a creative person is not to get in their way! Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and Leonardo da Vinci all used the best equipment and went to extraordinary lengths to find the finest materials for their paints, brushes, and canvas. And they’d be no different today. But don’t expect change to come easily. Insecure leaders tend to penalize honesty and feel threatened by creativity, especially when it suggests there’s a better way of doing things. But you owe it to God, to yourself, and the people you work with to give it your best shot.
