His Masterpiece - Poem by Paige Scott
*** One of my Christian themed poems.***
The Potter took a lump of clay and shaped it with His hands.
And when ‘twas finished all did say “’Tis lovelier than all.”
It was all smooth and beautiful, and really very perfect—
And all admired the Potter’s work, from the greatest to the small.
Then one day a Scoffer brought a lump of clay to Him.
He bid Him craft a piece as fine as the work He formed before.
The Potter examined this lump of clay, and found that it was dry.
The Scoffer laughed and said “You cannot craft one as before! ”
But the Potter took this lump of clay, though dry and hard it was,
And then took up a chisel, and carved a figure in the clay.
The Potter took the sculpture and held it before all,
And all did see that He had made a Masterpiece that day.
The Scoffer went away to sulk; the “Enemy” had won!
He made that sinful mass of clay into a piece of art.
The Potter was so full of joy—His work was a new creature.
Not only did He change the shape—He also changed the Heart!
