When God created the world, He created man and woman in His own image. The original mandate given to man was to be fruitful, multiply, and rule over all God had created. As part of that rule, God gave Adam the authority to name the animals, which was the first creative act of man.
Whether we realize it or not, God designed each one of us with a divine ability to create. We are the unique handiwork of God, and within our DNA is creative ability to fulfill our unique purpose on earth. In other words, we are created to reflect our Creator, the source of all creativity.
