I have identified as a creative person for most of my life. It’s hard for me to empathize with people who say they aren’t creative. Erwin McManus, the author of The Artisan Soul, agrees. He says “We see ourselves as created beings, so we choose to survive. When we see ourselves as creative beings, we must instead create.” I love that. I’ve never seen myself as a create who is compelled to create.
Another way Erwin phrases this is “The more we reflect the divine, the more we reflect that which is good, beautiful, and true.” For anyone who says they aren’t creative, can’t create, or don’t want to, I would leave them with this: your creator WANTS you to create. It is a gift and an honor to create for Him and reflect Him.
