Nice Shot

I just finished reading a brief article about a historic event that happened on this day in history. Today insulin was first used to treat diabetes in a human being. Just think how many lives have been saved, and the improvement in the quality of life that has been given to so many people because of this innovation.

My mom takes insulin shots. At least one of my uncles suffers from diabetes. Many American Indian people suffer from diabetes. Most of us know someone who has been affected by the advent of this injection. In the photo above, you can see some insulin crystals.

So why am I writing about this? It's a bit of a strange topic by itself, but I think the thing to consider is innovation. God has made us to be innovative and imaginative people. We were made to imagine the world a better place, and bring that imaginative vision into reality.

What is it that God wants you to bring from an idea into reality? How does God want you to apply your mind, your abilities, and your skills to make His world even more beautiful?
