Reflection For The Week

Why does God allow drought, famine and floods?

This passage of Jeremiah gives us a hint. The image of the potter shows God as the potter and the people and nations as the clay. God’s sovereignty is balanced by our responsibility.

God’s plan was to create a perfect creation, but humans resist that plan, we are the flaws in the clay of the perfect pot that God was creating. From a human point of view it seems that God will scrap that bit of the plan and start again – but His ultimate plan – a perfect creation – is never thwarted. The choice is ours: do we bring disaster on ourselves? or do we change our ways now to avert that future and allow God to re-mold us.
