INNOVATION

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Isaiah 43:18-21

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

You need to “innovate and create” in order to manufacture something. It takes much more creativity to manufacture a Mercedes Benz than it does to harvest oranges. The inventors of the iPod and iPhone in California have innovated and created much more than the man harvesting yam and corn on a farm in Africa. Obviously , the incomes of people in California will be higher than the incomes of the people in that African village.

What is an innovation?

i. An innovation is a new way of doing old things

ii. An innovation is the introduction of new processes and new methods

iii. An innovation is the introduction of a new invention

iv . An innovation is the provision of something new

v . An innovation is something improved and better than what exists

vi. An innovation improves the efficiency of an existing process

vii. An innovation usually lowers the cost of doing certain things.

Anytime someone innovates and creates he actually walks in the image of God in which he was created. He elevates himself above the life of an ordinary man. Anybody who innovates and creates, lifts himself above the curse and the poverty that afflicts most of the planet earth.
