Made in His image...

I'm pondering upon this scripture that we are made in God's image.  If we are made in His image, we are then creators too.  What a wonderful gift to be given!  We were created to create! 

I don't believe that we were all meant to be artists in the classical sense.  Certainly painting and sculpture are gifts or talents in themselves.  Creators make the world around us though.  Buildings are created.  Automobiles, planes, trains and boats are created.  Knitters and crocheters are creating.  Quilters and sewers are creating.  Engineers are creating.  Parents are creating homes and opportunities for their children.  Programmers are creating code to aid others.  Medical professionals are creating health and healing.

If we see creating as a gift, we then are responsible for using our gifts in a positive manner.  Certainly creators can make things that are not pleasing to God.  Choosing to create in such a way as to be pleasing to Him is another layer to ponder. 

Lord bless my works that they may be pleasing to you and a service to your people.
