Daily Inspirations

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 the clay another object of whatever sort he pleased.
—JEREMIAH 18:3–4


What we might see as broken and useless, God will repair and use. This process of being remade can be painful, but there is comfort in knowing we are in the potter's hands. God sees beyond our flaws to our potential beauty and purpose.

Jeremiah 18:1–6
Psalm 146:1b–2, 3–4, 5–6ab
Matthew 13:47–53
