Treasure In Clay Pots!

by Hazel Straub

We, as pots of earthly clay contain incredible treasure, the light of Jesus the Anointed One that sets our hearts ablaze. The light of God’s glory, reflects in face of Jesus, who lives inside of us. The glory goes to God, not us as a clay pots.

“If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That’s to prevent anyone from confusing God’s incomparable power with us. As it is, there’s not much chance of that. You know for yourselves that we’re not much to look at. We’ve been surrounded and battered by troubles, but we’re not demoralized; we’re not sure what to do, but we know that God knows what to do; we’ve been spiritually terrorized, but God hasn’t left our side; we’ve been thrown down, but we haven’t broken. What they did to Jesus, they do to us—trial and torture, mockery and murder; what Jesus did among them, he does in us—he lives! Our lives are at constant risk for Jesus’ sake, which makes Jesus’ life all the more evident in us. While we’re going through the worst, you’re getting in on the best! “(2 Corinthians 4:7-12 MSG)

  7. I saw pots put together to look like people at a botanical garden in Houston this summer. They are really cute and what a great analogy for us humans. Thank you for your uplifting message!

    • Wanda, you are welcome! That botanical garden sounds interesting. The pots made to look like people helped illustrate the treasure inside in each of us. Glad you found the post uplifting.
