Woe to those who quarrel with their Maker, those who are nothing but potsherds among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, “What are you making?” Does your work say, “The potter has no hands?”
Isaiah 45:9 (NIV)
There has perhaps never been a boardroom fight in Canadian financial history quite like the one that raged inside Rogers Communications last October. Pitting son against mother, and brother against sisters, it pulled out into broad daylight a nasty family quarrel that had been brewing behind closed doors ever since the patriarch of the family, Ted Rogers, died in 2008. Attacks and counterattacks came like rapid fire one after the other, until in November, Ted’s only son Edward declared victory in the struggle for control of Canada’s biggest wireless company.
There are two foundational beliefs by the postmodern atheist these days. One, there is no god. Two, I hate him. Take some time to read comments to any article on God or religion and you will find this to be true. The comments by those who say there is no God are often angry and spiteful. I often ask myself why, if they say they don’t believe in God, they are so vocal in their opposition to Him and His people. The Bible knew this would be the case. Isaiah 45:9 says “‘Woe to those who quarrel with their Maker, those who are nothing but potsherds among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’ Does your work say, ‘The potter has no hands’?” The animosity of postmodern atheists is founded on pride. That is what the Bible says. Who are we to question our Creator? He brought us into being. Can the clay argue with the potter? It’s a rhetorical question. Of course it can’t. We are the clay. Let’s humble ourselves before our Creator and He will honour us with value and eternal worth.
These have been words from the heart.
