In the potter’s hands

This potter was going to let my niece and nephew “help” on the potter’s wheel.  He spent ten minutes leading up to their experience, giving warnings of what could go wrong, preparing them to exactly follow his directions, and when they finally got their turn, he only let them touch it with one tiny pointer finger for less than a minute.  It made me realize how exacting God’s work is of molding his people, it’s truly His work, and He occasionally lets us touch another, but He doesn’t want us getting our hands all over it and messing it up.  The best thing we can do is just enjoy watching the Potter work.
