Thursday of Week 17 Year 2

If 2 items were placed before you: a large boulder and a piece of clay, which of the two would you identify yourself with, especially in your behaviour, attitude and present spiritual situation? Would you consider yourself hard and unmoving like the boulder, or would you see yourself as pliable and mouldable like the piece of clay? Many of us may like to think that we are like the piece of clay, but sometimes our way of life, our attitude, our behaviour and our actions prove otherwise.

In today's reading: "I went down to the potter’s house and there he was, working at the wheel. Whenever the object of clay which he was making turned out badly in his hand, he tried again, making of the clay another object of whatever sort he pleased. Then the word of the LORD came to me: Can I not do to you, house of Israel, as this potter has done? says the LORD. Indeed, like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, house of Israel." Just as the Lord constantly worked on the Israelites and tried to help them come back to Him, the Lord is also constantly working on us, beckoning us to turn back to Him and depend on Him. Are we willing and humble enough to allow ourselves to be like the object of clay, so that the Lord can transform us into something even more wonderful?
