The things Tim Knoll can do on a bike are amazing.
He’s taken tricks that people have already done and created new tricks. But he’s also created brand new tricks that are unlike anything anyone has seen before.
Each of us, created in God’s image, is an original. There is no one else on the planet just like you. You have the ability to create things no one has ever seen before. We get a glimpse of this through Moses, who in Exodus 31 records God’s description of the those who He created to build a tent for the ark of the covenant:
“and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of crafts.”
The question isn’t, “Are you creative?” The question is, “What were you created to create?” (See Ephesians 2:10)
- What do you dream of creating that’s uniquely you?
- Have you ever learned to do something really hard?
- If you could create anything, what would it be?
Chew on this:
If God has created us each uniquely, what role does our community play in recognising that?
