God's Pottery Shop

Romans 9:19-23
If we are not careful here we will fall into a trap and begin to wonder what gives God the right to make some receptive and others cold toward Him. Actually, we who are simply lumps of clay in "God's Pottery Shop" don't have the right to question what He is going to mold us into. It is He who has all the rights and He knows it is necessary to produce all kinds of pots, some very beautiful and some for the most basic, utilitarian purposes. Who are we to complain if God, in the process of producing a few works of art that show just how wonderful and merciful He is, had to patiently produce many imperfect vessels. These were only fit to be destroyed but were not wasted as their eventual destruction shows how patient God is and yet how justified His wrath is.

"God's Pottery Shop" sounds like the opposite of "Merlin's shop of mystical wonders"
