It takes knowledge to create something.
Written By Benjamin Dankaka
Hardly is there any career leader who doesn’t depend on creativity. It doesn’t matter the field, creativity is required in every business, including retailing. For example, Sam Walton, founder of Wal-Mart Stores used a creative business formula that most retailers ignore. He bought a wide variety of products in bulk across his network of stores so he could pass savings on to his customers. As a result, people flocked to his stores. Fortunately, everyone is creative. You may not be creative in your current work, but there’s a place you can be creative. And that place is certainly in your area of gifting.
If you are engaged in a work that you think has to do with your calling, and yet you are finding it difficult to be creative, maybe you are not making good use of your knowledge. It takes knowledge to create something. The Bible tells us that God made the heavens and earth by His understanding. That is, by His knowledge, God created the heavens and the earth. So He didn’t just create the heavens and the earth with His word. To create the earth, God had to use His understanding. Do what God did. Be creative.
Prayer: Lord, teach me your ways.
