Genesis 1:26-27. Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth,and over all the creatures that move along the ground." So God created man in his own image,in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

According to the Bible, the Living Word of God, He created humans in the image of the Trinity. "In Our Image, in our likeness." So if we are modeled after him and he had the ability to create us, then it can be said that every human has the ability to create. And if you look around the world today, whether you realize it or not, every human is fully utilizing this ability. Most recognizable is the fact that humans create other humans. But humans created buildings, inventions, recipes for food, clothes, etc. Humans also create the atmosphere around them. We can create happiness, prosperity, harmony, life or we create strife, famine, discord, and death. No matter how you look at it, humans are constantly creating something.

Hopefully if you have gotten this far, you did. :) Well now that you read that, you are responsible for that knowledge! Congratulations.
