Sometimes folks give me really great compliments. Compliments like, “I’ve learned a lot from you.” And they are more than twice my age.
Sometimes I do really stupid things. Like promising things I actually can’t follow through on, or getting annoyed because someone is wasting my time.
Sometimes I stare at the trees for a bit, trying to decide if I am a wonderful person, or a monster.
Jesus sent some words to me one of these times. He said, “I have given you these treasures in an earthen vessel.”
It’s amazing how he explains things so well to me. It made perfect sense, with just that simple explanation.
