Are You God’s Play-Doh?

There was always something so satisfying as a child to play with Hasbro brand Play-Doh.

First there was the feel and look of it, then of course the interesting smell and finally the magic property it had allowing the forming and reforming of it until it was just right.

In Jeremiah 18 we see what loyal Hasbro employees might say is God foreshadowing and also declaring His love for Play-Doh.

 1The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD saying, 2“Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will announce My words to you.”

3Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something on the wheel.

4But the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he remade it into another vessel, as it pleased the potter to make.

5Then the word of the LORD came to me saying,

6“Can I not, O house of Israel, deal with you as this potter does?” declares the LORD. “Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel.

Of course thousands of years ago they had to use clay, but the concept was the same.

What we did with Play-Doh as children and what our children and grandchildren still do with it today has not changed over the years.

Many of us have deep regrets in life.  Decisions that we made–or were too scared to make–often stay with us for years.

God says He is like the potter.  If for any reason decisions that we make are “spoiled” then the Potter, God,  will simply make something else.

No matter where you are in life, do not let regret cloud your view of who you are in God’s Kingdom.

You are precious and “remade” more times than you think.

And on top of that, this world we are in is God’s playroom.

Whatever He says goes.
