Original and Handcrafted with Love
I was discussing flooring and counter-tops with my brother today. He’s been a home builder for many years, so he’s my go-to-guy whenever I have questions about stuff like that. We were discussing the unique variations in wood and granite when he made these extraordinary statements. Each piece of wood and every slab of granite is different. There are similarities yes, yet each piece is entirely different than the one next to it. Man-made products can be counted on to be consistently the same, because they are designed by man. God’s products are each original, handcrafted designs. Complex and masterfully made into a unique and beautiful design. Original and handcrafted with love by God.
Psalms 139:14 NLT “Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.” Each one of us is ‘fearfully and wonderfully’ made. Similar and yet each one of us is a unique masterfully designed rendering. Unique and complex, beautiful and intricate, distinctive and wonderfully crafted in our own individual way. Our eyes might be blue or brown or green, our skin may be tinted with cream, chocolate, or caramel, and we may be tall, short, thin or fluffy. Similar and still very distinctively different. Yes, we are all similar, and yet each individual person is unique from everyone else. We are a masterpiece. We are each an original masterpiece that is uniquely handcrafted with love by God.
