True Originality

Reg Grant on November 22, 2009 in DTS Devotional

Most artists value originality. But C. S. Lewis, certainly one of the most creative minds of the 20th century said, “No man who values originality will ever be original.” I think he meant that we humans, while creative, are incapable of originating anything apart from the Lord. The Lord Jesus himself depended on God the Father for even the most ordinary activities – like speaking. “For I have not spoken from my own authority, but the Father himself who sent me has commanded me what I should say and what I should speak.” (John 12:49) Ask the Lord to guide you in your speech today.
