Molly’s Minute: Broken Made Beautiful

July 4, 2022

In the world of Japanese pottery, there’s a special technique called kintsugi

Kintsugi means “golden repair.” And it’s exactly what it sounds like:

Filling the cracks on a broken piece of pottery with gold

When something is repaired with kintsugi, you can still see all its cracks. But they don’t look like cracks. They look like shining golden lines crisscrossing all over the piece of pottery.

Kintsugi is amazing because it not only makes broken things useable again. It makes them even more beautiful than they were before.

And through God’s power and goodness, He can do the same thing for you.

Ecclesiastes 3:11, “He has made everything beautiful in its time.

God is able to make a masterpiece out of anything. Even the most broken of lives.

So today, if you’ve got broken pieces, offer them up to Him. And just watch Him make something beautiful.
