Just for fun

A few days ago I was having a conversation with somebody about the extravagant creativity of God. We were sharing our mutual delight at the bizarre and intricate detail of those parts of creation which have been hidden from humankind for centuries until technology was available to discover them. Think, for example, of the extraordinary creatures who lurk at the bottom of the ocean floor. Was God just ‘having fun’ when he made them, I wonder?

This morning somebody sent me a link to drawastickman.com. If you click on the image below, it will take you there too. So far as I can tell this is just good fun. Its not advertising anything*, its not promoting a cause, its just trying to get us to have fun. When you complete your stick man adventure (you will have a go, won’t you?) a phrase appears on the bottom of the screen: be creative – every day. To do so is to live up to the image of God within us, I believe. Whether we do it in words, in pictures, in musical notes, in baking, or in a myriad of other ways – creating is our greatest tribute to the Creator.
