The great thing about mankind is we are always looking for innovative ways to improve life on earth. It amazes me how quickly electronic devices are updated and improved upon. I am proud to say that I once owned a car phone that came in a bag. That thing was huge and didn’t get great service. I’m not sure now why I had it or who I called, but in no time phones became smaller and smarter. They have become a necessity for most folks. Many are co-dependent on them which is a whole new problem. We treasure them like gold, don’t leave the house without it. We use it at every given moment of peace or calm throughout the day. Within all good things, there’s usually a way mankind finds to corrupt and or pervert.
We are created by God from the dust of the ground; we are called jars of clay. Not too many people would treasure a plain jar of clay. They are not fancy or expensive and not much to look at. We are not much on our own, but when God places light (treasure) within the jars of clay, they become valuable and precious. “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us” (2 Corinthians 4:7). We should be humble and meek in our clay jars so that God outshines. Our purpose is the show the love of God in everything we do. If we are plain and God is shiny, we have treasure to share with others.
