The Poor are Created in the Image of a Creative God

The Bible tells us that humans are created in the image of God. It is easy to see that God is creative, just look at His creation from the earth to the intricacies of the human body. So if we are created in the image of God and God is creative, then we are created creative. Every one of us is created creative.

The implications of this idea are profound and empowering for people living in material poverty. If every person, even those in material poverty, are created creative, then each of us have been created with unique gifts, skills and talents to impact our lives and God’s Kingdom around us. While there are many challenges in communities of material poverty, we have to believe that the people who live there often have the creative potential to positively impact their community. Creative problem solving does not rest only on those not living in material poverty.
