The Lord gave another message to Jeremiah. He said, "Go down to the potter's shop, and I will speak to you there."
So I did as he told me and found the potter working at his wheel. But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again . . . . . . . .
and started over. Jeremiah 18:1-4 NLT
