Let My People Know

"God continuously sustains the world"

“The question is asked: What is the difference between human creativity and Divine creation?

Human creativity, it is explained, is the manufacture of implements that have their own existence.

They can continue to exist independently of the one who made them.

The Divine creation, however, is continuous.

God keeps sustaining and developing what He makes by re-creating every particle of existence in endless succession.”
