Thought on Thursday - November - 19/11/2020

'We are only the earthenware jars that hold this treasure, to make it clear that such an overwhelming power comes from God and not from us.' ~2 Corinthians 4:7

The image of an earthenware jar is simple and yet so powerful when we look at it closer. An earthenware jar is fragile and is made of baked clay. It is symbolic of all that's fragile particularly in our world and in our lives. Yet we are told it holds a great treasure despite its fragility.
It also reflects our own lives. We are indeed fragile and vulnerable. Despite our best efforts we have little control over what is fragile and unpredictable in life. Yet we give the impression at times that we are unbreakable, important and beyond any limitation.
No person can be fully any of these. Like an earthenware jar, we are limited and finite. We can't journey through life thinking we're invincible. The real treasure is an ability to invite God into the fragility of our lives whatever it might be right now
