TEXT: Jeremiah 18
1 The word that came from Jeremias to the Lord, saying:
2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there thou shalt hear my words.
3 And I went down into the potter’s house, and behold he was doing a work on the wheel.
4 And the vessel was broken which he was making with clay with his hands: and turning he made another vessel, as it seemed good in his eyes to make it.
5 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
6 Cannot I do with you as this potter, saith the Lord? behold as clay is in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.
the world we are living in today has manufactured sophisticated machine to design, repair or even to reconstruct things. a broken car can be taken to a garage and get fixed to the extent that you can’t tell that it was once broken. but in all our human wisdom and understanding no one is able to repair a human body or repair a broken heart BUT it is only God
