"For by him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him." Col. 1:15
This is my second and final post on our granddaughter's school program. After the singing, everyone went into the fellowship hall to view the crafts that the kids had made during the school year. Here she is with Phil. We hugged and praised her. No, we did not say a word about her little "performance" on stage just minutes before. Any discipline for that episode was all up to her parents. Grandparents are lucky that way. Pictures show just a few of their creations. I love the paper bag fishes, and showed hers specifically because she made the only one with long eyelashes. God created us to be in His image, but how could that be when we certainly don't look like him, being flesh and blood? Because God gave us some of his attributes, including the ability to create. And boy, do we create! When man built the tower of Babel, here's what God said about our creating :"If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them." Just think about that. Nothing will be impossible! But the problem with the tower was that men got so carried away with these creative abilities that they thought they could replace God. So he actually had to inhibit our abilities in some way. Kind of like little Anne on stage, sometimes being TOO creative isn't such a good thing.
