The Award for Best Creator

Last night was Oscar night! People in movie land received accolades for best cinematography, costuming, special effects, performance, director, and countless other categories before culminating in the final award--best picture of the year. It seemed every base was covered--except for one.

There was no award, not even an honorable mention, for best Creator.

Despite prizes given to filmmakers who fabricate fanciful lands and characters, no one--neither host nor honoree--thanked God for enabling them to do the things they did. Neither did they mention how the worlds they created were a pale imitation in contrast to the glory that exists over our heads day and night.

"The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands."
~Psalm 19:1

Doubly tragic is the fact that God invested these talents in men and women when He conferred on us His own image, thereby enabling us to have creative powers.

"So God created man in his own image, 
in the image of God created he him,
male and female created he them."
~Genesis 1:27

Is God hurt by this? I don't know. I do know He's not surprised by it. 

So join me, won't you, in acknowledging right here and now that there is one, and only one, contender in the category of Best Creator, and that would be Elohim, the one true God in three divine persons. Rather than an award which perishes, let us give Him our hearts, souls, minds, and strength. For He alone is worthy.
