Daily Nugget

     Thursday, September 19th, 2013.  Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

Someone once showed an artist a costly handkerchief, on which a blot of ink had been made. “Nothing can be done with it now; it is absolutely worthless.” The artist made no reply, but carried it away with him. After a time he sent it back, to the great surprise of his friend, who could scarcely recognize it. In a most skillful and artistic way, he had made a fine design in India ink, using the blot as a basis, making the handkerchief more valuable than ever.

Every one of us can look at mistakes in our life and declare ourselves useless. Oh, but we do not receive that report from our own mind nor from others. What we have messed up can be made clean by God Who loves us and desires to have fellowship with us in spite of our shortcomings. A blotted life is not necessarily a useless life. Though it has been marred by sin, Jesus can make a life beautiful.

The Prophet Isaiah reminds us: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow” (Isaiah 1:18).

God, I love You and want Your total cleansing making me into the work of art You want me to be. Amen.
