Bear with me if this is a little all over the place, it’s just something I’ve been thinking about. Also, feel free to ask for clarification if something isn’t clear 🙂
You know how everyone has things they really like and are naturally good at like athletics, math, art, science or debating? And you know how good it feels when you use your talent and say, create an awesome painting, or finally figure out a math problem?
Well, I think that the reason it feels so good is because when we use our talent, we’re actually acting like Jesus. After all, who created the beautiful world we live in? Who created a color splashed sky? Jesus. He’s the ultimate creator, so when you paint, you are actually acting like God, you are being who you really are, because God created you in his image.
When you solve a math or science problem, same thing. God created math and science. It feels good when you use your brain, because you were created in the image of God–to be like him (to some extent anyway–I’m not saying we were created to be gods) and God is the most intelligent being in existence.
