The scripture for today, January 31(1/31), is Genesis 1:31 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
Oh, how God loves to spoil us! He didn’t create a barren earth and then order us to get to work and plant something. He got everything just right. And then…. And then…. And then his crowning glory ~ he created us! Special us!
We looked around with wonder and began exploring our world as an infant would. But then what? What was there to do?
To our delight, we discovered God hadn’t created everything after all. Why? Because he made us to be like him ~ creative.
He left the jewels unmined, the buildings unbuilt, the clay unmolded, the songs unwritten, the paintings unpainted, the ships unmade, the poems unpenned, the sculptures uncarved….
Today, create something!
