Your Ability to Create Manifests God’s Generosity
God gives us the ability to create and an avenue to be happy with the output that our hands can do. This is how generous and loving our God is. Imagine God during Creation – “And God looked upon all that He had made, and indeed, it was very good.” I believe He wants us to experience that same satisfaction whenever we pursue and accomplish our passion projects. Remember, we were created in Christ Jesus to do good works.
