Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4 (selected verses) from the Message translation
If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That’s to prevent anyone from confusing God’s incomparable power with us. As it is, there’s not much chance of that. You know for yourselves that we’re not much to look at. We’ve been surrounded and battered by troubles, but we’re not demoralized; we’re not sure what to do, but we know that God knows what to do; we’ve been spiritually terrorized, but God hasn’t left our side; we’ve been thrown down, but we haven’t broken.

God, remind us that you move most powerfully in the ordinary times and moments. Remind us that our ordinary lives are beautifully and wonderfully made in you. Help us to look at our own lives and the lives around us as creations that you carefully made. Amen.
