What You Say: “When we look at the world, we see that God is creative. God didn’t make just one thing. He didn’t make the world one color. He made so many different things that we can’t even count them all. There’s no limit to God’s creativity. God’s creativity doesn’t end with the world He made either. God’s creativity shines through each of you. God made each of you in His image. God made you to think, feel, and act just a bit like Him. Imagine what you could do because you’re made in His image.
[Make It Personal – Share about a time you were struck by God’s creativity. Maybe you were star-gazing and you were amazed at the number of stars in the sky. Or perhaps you’ve volunteered at an animal shelter and seeing all the different types of dogs reminds you of God’s creativity.]
