Jars of Clay

clay-jarsI am Like a Jar of Clay

I have my treasure in jars of clay to show that my all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
Interesting, I am fragile, but inside I have this all surpassing power from God. It is my treasure.

I have been hard pressed on every side, but not crushed;
I have been perplexed, but not in despair;
I have been persecuted, but not abandoned;
I have been struck down, but not destroyed.
– 2 Corinthians 4:7-9

Said differently, you can break my body but not my soul.
