Jeremiah received the Lord’s word: Go down to the potter’s house, ________, and I’ll give you instructions about what to do there. So I went down to the potter’s house; he was working on the potter’s wheel. But the piece he was making was flawed while still in his hands, so the potter started on another, as seemed best to him. Then the Lord’s word came to me: ________, can’t I deal with you like this potter, declares the Lord? Like clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in mine, __________!
- Jeremiah 18:1-6 (Common English Bible)

We invited them to come inside until it was safe. Thankfully, the situation was resolved without anyone getting hurt." Read more from Pockets magazine.
