We Are Designed to Be Creative, Like Our Heavenly Father

Creativity is Part of Our God-Given DNA

Do a Google search for “benefits of coloring for adults” and you’ll find a plethora of articles about coloring to relieve stress, overcome grief, add creativity to your life, keep your brain active, and more.

It’s more than just a fad. It’s part of being human. We have an innate desire to be creative, and it's healthy for us!

Creativity comes in many forms: photography, writing, building, gardening, decorating, baking, cooking, etc.

Creativity is Part of Our God-Given DNAGod emphasized the spiritual aspects of creativity when assigning craftsmen for the temple. Bezalel was filled “with the Spirit of God in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all kinds of craftsmanship.” Exodus 31:3

The Bible also highlights a New Testament believer named Tabitha who used her sewing skills to bless widows in the church (Acts 9:39).

We're made in the image of the ultimate Creator, so creativity is in our DNA.

Grand or simple, I challenge you to do something creative for the Lord this week. It's healthy for you!
