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. 2 Corinthians 4:7 (TM)
Let’s face it, our daily lives aren’t that exciting. We watch the lives of celebrities, we read about the ups and downs of superstars, we watch the drama of "reality" television, and our lives pale in comparison. Few of us have lives which would make good fodder for reality television. They’re just not that exciting. They’re "unadorned clay pots."
And yet, our ordinary, clay pot lives are a vessel in which we carry a priceless treasure. Our simply, daily existence is to carry within it the brightness of Jesus’ message. It might take others a bit to see it. We might have to build a relationship with them so that they have opportunity to see what’s inside of us. That’s all part of the plan.
God’s Message is not about bling. It’s quiet truth that pervades the most mundane items on our to-do list.
