A night of creativity

Last night I watched a movie with my family about the life of Beatrix Potter - "Miss Potter". She was a best selling author of children’s books like “The Tale of Peter Rabbit”. It was very interesting to notice that after watching this movie which highlighted a very creative and artistic person, that we found ourselves playing music, dancing, singing, and our youngest two children even spent time drawing and coloring. Our home was alive with creativity. It was an amazing example of how what we put into ourselves affects who we are and what we do. We watched a movie about creativity and we were drawn to creativity. 

It is so important what we allow into our lives, what our eyes see and our ears hear. I venture to say that if we had watched a movie about fighting and murder that our natural reaction would not have been to sing and dance. This is why God’s Word tells us to think on things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8). God’s Word also tells us to be careful what our eyes see and what our ears hear because what we put into ourselves matters greatly and will contribute to making us who we are.
