The piece of ground looked like long gouges in the earth left behind to fill in with water and become overgrown with weeds. However, as we continued the tour, our guide explained that these were planned ponds to grow specialized plants. At the proper time these plants would be transplanted to help reclaim land that had been lost to subsidence or erosion.
When we look in the mirror, or when we look others, what do we see? Do we see something useless and ugly? In Ephesians 2:10 the “Guide” of the universe sees us this way, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.”
