Creating as Worship and Not as Production

When our creativity is grounded in worship, we become deeply content. Our contributions are not about prestige or production. The are about faithfulness.

He Saw That It Was Good p. 31

It is interesting and helpful that he ties worship to faithfulness and contrasts both with prestige and production. Our worship of God is an act of faithfulness. For we are always worshipping something, and when we turn that worship to God it is faithfulness to his call on our lives as our creator. 

But it’s also turning our purposes and efforts over to God’s sovereignty. Thus our lives become less and less concerned with prestige—with ourselves and how we look to others. And worship allows us to rest in God and trust that he brings the results that are necessary and ultimately produces through us what is needed for the kingdom—for others and us to flourish.
