Symbol 9 - Potter's Hands

Follow me
My Jesse Tree
Started December 4th!

God sends Jeremiah to watch a potter working in his shop.  The potter places wet clay on a wheel and begins to shape it.  Something goes wrong with the clay, and the pot or bowl is ruined. 

The potter doesn't throw the clay out, but rather takes it off the wheel, kneads it into a ball, puts it back on the wheel, and begins shaping the clay into a different piece of pottery than what he tried to make the first time.

Jeremiah learns a lesson from watching the potter......that a person, or a nation, is merely clay in the Great Potter's hands.  Only He has the skill to design us all according to the image in His own mind.  If we go morally astray, The Potter will reshape us.    Never are we broken to where He can't fix us. 

To my Jesse Tree, I add the............
