Extol--Praise feeds creativity

And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good. . ." Genesis 1:3-4 (NIV)

The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

In Genesis, in the very beginning of the Bible--the beginning of time, God began his creation of the world as we know it. Each step of the way, he sat back and "saw that it was good." God used that bit of praise--it was good--to be encouraged to continue.

Creativity is something God put into man, a tool to be used to enhance life. When we praise others for their creativity it inspires them to continue to use that gift. By our praise, we could be causing the creation of "a thousand forests." It only takes one nut.
