I haven’t spent much time with clay and a potter’s wheel … lately. But my memory does serve me well enough to recall early on in grammar school playing with clay. You probably did too.
We shaped and formed…..and shaped and formed….and inevitably, the clay became such a mess that you probably had to start over. Visions of creating the next Michelangelo sculpture soon became an ash tray or cereal bowl that sat in the family cupboard for who know how long!
This week for our study, we learn of a time when God asked Jeremiah to observe a potter hard at work. Many observations but one is the clay becomes “spoiled” which is another term for having to start over. God, like the potter, doesn’t ball us up in a head of bad clay. No, he sits back down at the wheel and gets back to work. We are the “clay” and he is the “potter”.
Ready chapters 6-7 this week and focus of Jeremiah 18:1-18 for the scripture message.
Jason Schubert leads us this week with Lesson 3 of the Study Guide.
