Sometimes, we can create a din or a mess or trouble, but I believe we have more creativity to offer for several reasons.
The most wonderful creativity of all can take place in the human heart as we allow God to be in the centre of our lives. It says in 2 Corinthians 5:17 (of the Bible – God’s encyclopedia for us humans) “If any man (or woman or child) is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has gone, the new has come.” God can change the human heart and thus our actions and our creativity can be developed fully when we admit we need him and say sorry for the blunders we have made. Then the full thrust of His creativity comes into us in the form of the Holy Spirit so that He can change us from within and creatively make us like Himself in a unique way and prepare us for the real life ahead. Then, the time spent here on planet Earth can be regarded as the dress rehearsal for the real life of living with Jesus for ever and serving Him creatively even more later. How our children need this hope so that their creativity can reach its full potential. As they ponder what God has already done in making our world and sending Jesus Christ to it, then they can access the creativity of their Maker. Hence the writing of the ‘Creation Series’ to read to 3–4’s so that even in their very young years, children can understand and see visually what God has done for them in making them creative.
