Thoughts: The Lord told Jeremiah to go to the potter’s house, and Jeremiah went.
It would be understandable if Jeremiah had asked questions.
What’s his address?
Shall I tell him the Lord sent me?
What am I supposed to see?
What do you want me to do?
What’s the purpose of all this, anyway?
Usually, Jeremiah had a great deal to say. His book has 52 chapters – the third longest book in the Bible – and he followed this with five chapters of aptly named Lamentations, which ends with one of the saddest verses in the Bible: “…thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us.”
Jeremiah went to the potter’s house – and listened to God.
Discussion: When have you felt there was clay you could reshape?
Activity: “Do all the good you can….” And try saying less.
