If you’ve ever sat at a potter’s wheel, you know how delicate and careful one must be to shape the vessel to one’s liking. Things must spin at the right speed and the tiniest nudge can transform the clay into something beautiful or ruined. Throughout the Scriptures, the imagery of potter and clay are used throughout the text to remind us of our relationship with the Father. God uses every situation and scenario to shape us and mold us into the cross-shaped life of Christ. While God works in us, he shapes us into vessels by which he pours his love into the world through us. What a blessing to see God working in this way through us. May we continue to be molded, filled, and used to bear witness to the blessings of Christ!
In the hands of the Potter with you!
