Romans 9:21, NIV: Does not the potter have the right to make out
of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use?
God has a plan for each of us that is unique. He has created us with gifts, abilities
and personality traits that are all combined to make us fit for the work He has chosen for
us. If we try to hold to the predefined guidelines of society, church, family and self, we
may completely miss what God is desiring to do with us. We may become the epitome of what
everyone around us thinks a proper minister, ministers wife, Christian, etc., should
be, but we may also be very miserable as we do not allow ourselves to simply be what God
has designed us to be.
