"But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay and You are the potter; And all we are the work of Your hand." - Isaiah 64 V8

"and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants." - Luke 15 V19

After wasting away all his father's wealth on worthless living, the prodigal son soon realizes that the servants at his father's house have more to eat than what he has, and he makes a decision to return to his father and serve his father like one of his father's servant. We were all once like the prodigal son and we had to make our personal decision to reconcile with our Father in heaven through Jesus Christ our Lord. Sooner or later every person has to make a choice and accept God's love through His Son Jesus Christ or reject His love. It is better to say to our Father in heaven "Make me" than to say "Give me". Blessed are those who inherit the kingdom of God! Let Him be our potter and we be His clay, according to His will.

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
