OK, this is a little unusual for me, but I was so moved by this video, I couldn’t leave it without comment. My post will be brief so that you have time to watch this 7-minute video. Please do watch it. It is amazing!
This brings to mind the great Ceramics Master: God.
Did you see their concentration? Their intentionality? The grace, care, tenderness, and thoughtfulness each Master put into their work? Do you see how they see what’s under the outer layer and know just how to bring out the beauty? So many vessels… so many purposes. And these guys create these things hundreds of times a year.
You know all that thumping, shaping, holding, cutting, and coloring God does through your circumstances? He is no less thoughtful, intentional, and understanding of his work than these ceramics masters. He’s forming something beautiful, valuable, and amazing: YOU.
But now, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. Isaiah 64:8
