A Jar of Clay

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

An earthen vessel is fragile and easily broken. So much like my human flesh. And just like the one in the picture, flawed, chipped and can be cracked, too. I am worthless without the "treasure" in me. So if I were to boast of any accomplishments, it is because of God's power working within me.
