Treasure in a clay pot

But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. 2 Corinthians 4:7

Our quest

The human interest in goodness and excellence has often brought us to the wealthy and the influential. More often than not we look in the wrong places and our quests end with some of the most abominable things and people. Typically we pursue and latch onto the proud and self-reliant, the heroes of the world’s junkyards and dynasties.

God’s gift

God has deposited, to our surprise, his lasting, incorruptible, and theft-free fortune in the lowly of circumstance and heart. In these mortal bodies of ours there is excellence: the Holy Spirit and the character of God our Father and Saviour.

We have treasure!
