Filled with Gold – When a pot is broken the the Japanese will join or mend the pieces together with gold. It actually makes the mended broken piece worth more money because they joined the broken pieces with gold. This art form is called kintsukuroi. This artwork repairs the pot and adds to keep the history of the pot. It also makes the pot no longer disgusting from the broken state.
Filled with Gold
Gold is a pure and precious metal. Can you imagine if all kings horses and all the kings men used gold to put Humpty Dumpty together? Just something to ponder.
God does a similar thing to us.
However, He doesn’t fill our broken pieces with gold, instead, He uses something more precious that gold.
I should say, someone … He fills our broken pieces with Jesus. Jesus is His Son who is very precious to Him and us. More precious that gold! Instead of Filled with Gold, we are filled with Jesus Christ!
There is no one that God cannot fix! We ALL can be fixed no matter how broken we are (even if it in millions of millions of pieces).
The more gold that was used to repair those pots, the more valuable they became. We are very valuable to gold as a child of God. Not to mention, God uses our brokenness for His glory! We might not see it! But He has a plan and purpose!
Jesus is the one that fills that void and restores us. That precious blood of Christ is what restores us anew. Have a hole in our heart, Jesus is the cure! Have broken cracks, Jesus is the cure! Sum it up! Jesus is the ALL CURE!
In order to be restored we must be a child of God or come to be a child of God by accept His Son Jesus Christ. We must also repent of our sin. Repentance is key! Without repentance we cannot be mended or made anew. That means, a 180, not 360!
God is the only one, that fill us with His Son. Drugs, Sex, Alcohol, Work, Money, Etc. will not fill those cracks in our life. Only God Can!
Those golden filled cracks show that we face life and God restores us. It can serve as reminder that God always provides and takes care of us. That will always continue to provide and take care of us.
