I am guilty too. I use the phrase “creatives” even though I claim that we are all created in the image of the Creator. Yes, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, who spoke life into being, breathed the cosmos, filled the land and sea with his word, and created us. In. His. Image.
The problem we introduce when we use the label of “the creative” is that it creates two classes, the creatives and the, of course, the non-creatives. So we have those who are wired to think creatively, and the rest of is are hamsters in wheels.
I refuse to accept this.
I believe that the truth lies in exploring creativity, and recognizing it in our lives. You don’t have to be an artist to be creative. By nature, you already are creative.
Whether you currently put yourself in the creative or non-creative bunch, I hope you would explore the creative nature of God, your nature from being created in his image, and how you can tap into this innate creativity to live a full life. I discuss this in more depth in my book, which you can buy in digital or print format here.
