We are but broken jars of clay
healed by the precious blood of Jesus
made more beautiful for the imperfection ...

But now, O LORD, you are our Father;
we are the clay, and you are our potter;
we are all the work of your hand.
- Isaiah 64.8
But we have this treasure in jars of clay,
to show that the surpassing power
belongs to God and not to us.
- 2 Corinthians 4.7
there are some pots that
others that leak,
that can give no service
until bound-up and restored
into service’s assembly
and there, in service,
not in itself,
but in what it bears.
