The Potter

World English Bible

Jeremiah 18:1-4
The Potter and the Clay
1 The word which came to Jeremiah from Yahweh, saying, 2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear my words. 3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and behold, he was making a work on the wheels. 4 When the vessel that he made of the clay was marred in the hand of the potter, he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

The Potters Wheel
Like the hands of God

Remould me Potter, quickly before I dry out too soon lest I be left marred for the sake of too little time – never allow ourselves to become so proud that we do not turn to the Lord in time to be born anew. In our case it is not the Lord that mars us but ourselves and unless we climb back into the palm of his hand we become as shards in the Potters Field.
