To Be Creative, You Must First Be Curious

Seth Dahl receives some wisdom on the endless nature of creativity within Christianity. If you're creative or want to be, this is for you!


Meet Seth Dahl! Seth is committed to listening to everyone he meets because he believes that each person has something profound to say.

In this video, Seth introduces us to John Paul who brings some deep insight into the creative process and what it means to live up to one’s unique potential. As God’s handiwork made in His image, we’ve been gifted with the beautiful ability to create. To do so, you must first be curious, John Paul explains. “In Christianity, sometimes, we can actually find ourselves in a box,” he warns. “Since we know the end of the book, we think we know the end of creation. And since we know the end of creation, we think we know the end of creativity.”

If you want to create with the gusto that our Creator desires from us, he encourages, never lose sight of curiosity or assume you know the exact way the story will end.

John Paul admonishes Christians not to be content with the status quo or what has already been created. God does not want us to simply duplicate someone else’s brilliant ideas. Rather, use others’ ideas to spark your own creative process as an act of worship. There are so many problems in the world, and you have been gifted with the potential to find brilliant solutions.
