2 Corinthians 4:5-18

The fragile resilience of clay

The fragile resilience of clay

Paul describes our lives as simple clay jars. Common unadorned vessels that are actually quite plain and fragile. We are all ordinary vessels that are easily chipped and broken, left on our own our clay lives can easily dry up and crumble. And we shouldn’t try to run away from this fact, we shouldn’t pretend like somehow we got the deluxe model life with unbreakable sides.
