Proper 18 (23) 2016 – Jeremiah 18:5-6

Monday, August 29, 2016

The lectionary selections for this coming Sunday include: Jeremiah 18:1-11 and Psalm 139:1-6, 13-18, Deuteronomy 30:15-20 and Psalm 1, Philemon 1:1-21, and Luke 14:25-33.

Jeremiah 18:5-6Then the word of the LORD came to me: Can I not do with you, O house of Israel, just as this potter has done? says the LORD. Just like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.

While God is disappointed with his people in this chapter, I love the image of God reworking us.  God is never finished with us nor does God lose faith in us.

Creator God, mold us into the people you want us to be.  Amen.
