How God Makes You a Masterpiece - #6244
When God wanted to explain to His people the painful events in their lives, He sent His prophet Jeremiah down to the potter's house for an illustration. Jeremiah said: "I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as it seemed best to him."


Potter - a Christian perspective
Before we complain that God isn't treating us fairly, we should ask ourselves: since God created us, doesn't He have the right to mold and shape us as He sees fit, even if it seems unfair from our perspective?


Potter in the Bible: Isaiah 64:8
This reference to God as a potter reminds us that not only did God create us, but he continues to fashion and mold us in His image as we serve Him.


Vessel - a Christian perspective
God has created each of us for a purpose--but our purposes are unique, and some are more outwardly glamorous than others. But in God's eyes, the most important question is not how impressive your purpose is, but whether or not you are allowing God to use you for the purpose He intends for you.
