Creativity at the end of keeping going

It is where the synergistic interplay of courage, wisdom and generosity make us most creative.*
Erwin McManus

No-one was sent into the world without being given the infinite possibilities of the heart.**
John O’Donohue

For Erwin McManus,
Courage and generosity and Wisdom
are the result of three quests
or journeys
that we make.

Courage is the product of integrity,
Which is in turn the result of
humility –
A response to pride.

Generosity is the product of wholeness,
Which is in turn the result of
gratitude –
A response to greed.

Wisdom is the product of perseverance,
Which in turn is the result of
faithfulness –
A response to foolishness.

We can be creative at any point along the way,
But if McManus is right then each of us is capable of even greater creativity
if we keep moving.

This will look different for each of us,
But my guess is,
You will know what you must do.
