Whether you feel like you’re too broken for God because of something beyond your control, or a mistake you made that you can’t get away from, the truth is that He’s looking for you. He wants you. He loves you.
This message was delivered recently by a friend of mine, Jeremy Kirkpatrick, who was kind enough to share the transcript with me..and with you. Jeremy is a gifted writer, speaker, woodworker, husband, and father of three.
I know there are some canners out there who could probably use some extra jars.
I have this Mason jar here, perfectly fine. Any takers?
I have another one…It was just like that one until about an hour ago. But it had an accident. Instead of being in one piece it’s in several.
Anyone? Aside from that one mishap, I’ve taken good care of this jar. No takers?
It’s worthless now, isn’t it?
It’s funny how the value of something can change in an instant.
In the case of these two vessels there isn’t much difference. They’re the same size, same type, made of the same stuff.
But where one has value, one is now totally worthless because its value was in its ability to perform a function which it can no longer accomplish. When it comes to glass there is very little forgiveness.
