day 2502: Images

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

It’s now becoming a bigger and bigger deal when someone’s image (of themselves or an image they own) is used by someone else commercially or for a cause. It’s a simple check to make, but an easy step to miss. But, when missed, all kinds of trouble can be waiting. We are going to spend more and more advertising dollars (and efforts) online so we should be ensuring we are diligent to stay on the right side of how to use an image.

I like to work with and support entrepreneurs.  If ever we doubt that any of us are not meant to be creators in the image of God then consider this great quote from the book: “Called to Create: A Biblical Invitation to Create, Innovate, and Risk” by Jordan Raynor: ““In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light” (Gen. 1:1–3). If you’re like me, you have read this passage so many times that it can be easy to miss the magnitude of what’s happening here. In the beginning, “the earth was formless and empty” (v. 2). It wasn’t until God took action that this formless void began to be filled. God brought something out of nothing. He brought order out of chaos. God was the first entrepreneur.” Yes, we are to be in His image today.
