Molding and Shaping


Molding and Shaping


This picture tells the story.  The skilled hands of the potter forms and shapes the clay. 

   How much pressure?
      How much water?
        How fast to spin the wheel?

No concern over dirty hands.  They can be cleaned.

It’s the end result that matters.

And if a mistake is made, I’ve seen master potters smash the clay and start all over.

Yours are the hands.  What are you molding and shaping?

It’s a metaphor for life.

Curiosity


Curiosity
  
I consider myself to be a curious person.  I’m sometimes like a small child.  When our last three grandkids were crawlers and toddlers, they loved to open every cabinet door on their level in our kitchen.  They were curious.

Curiosity is good.  It is how we learn.  We open doors and books, drive down roads and go places just to see where the road leads.

Some curiosity, however, is not so good for us.  I remember reading once that Michelangelo was dissecting bodies in the morgue trying to learn anatomy.  He cut into a bowel sac.   

Be curious, and be cautious.
