A Treasure in Jars of Clay

“For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;  always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.” (2 Cor. 4: 6-10 ESV)

O Lord, let me not forget today
that I am a jar of clay,
a jar of clay in which you have decided to place a treasure;
the treasure of the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Amen
