But select capable men from all the people—men who fear GOD, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain—and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens. Exodus 18:21 (NIV)
Pottery is a meticulous art that demands all of the potter’s attention. The potter’s goal is to give a magnificent shape to the clay that was slimy and formless at first. The vase in all its glory doesn’t yet exist, except in the potter’s mind.
With patience, the potter removes the residue, the lumps and bumps, in other words, anything that makes it rough to the touch. The final product is a smooth, shiny vase, perfectly and magnificently polished. You are like this vase. Perhaps today you feel imperfect, rough, not polished at all. GOD, the divine Potter, is working to make you pure and smooth!
More means ‘a greater or additional amount or degree’ or ‘to a greater extent’. In the month of July, the Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children also, just as it is written in Psalm 115:14.
GOD, I thank you for bringing me into another month, the second half of the year, I declare that my increase will know no bounds in this season in Jesus name.
Bible reading: Psalm 106-108
