I have often marveled at the instinctive creativity of a small child. A stick in the hand is easily reimagined into a ship hurtling through space, a simple flower into a royal wedding bouquet. The effect of sin is to turn this wonderful creativity stamped upon our soul by the Creator Himself into craftiness. As pride and selfishness grows creativity is used to devise ingenious ways of deceit and wrongdoing. The only corrective for this is to return our creativity to its original purpose, to use it for good. Holy Father, may Your Divine Nature turn my instinctive ingenuity into creative ways to spread Your love to others.
