When Michelangelo was planning a statue, he went to the marble quarry for a stone. All he could find in the size he wanted was a reject. He took it and formed the body of David into a position would fit. That reject became the renowned David.

That is what God does with us. He takes rejects and turns them into magnificent tools of God. God transformed Mary Magdalene. She was known for her promiscuity but she became an influential follower of Christ. Matthew, the tax collector, was a thief but after he gave his life to Christ he was used to pen part of the Holy Scriptures. Jesus invited four fishermen to leave their jobs and be transformed into preachers and teachers. God can take you and mold you into His image so that you can be used for His kingdom. Are you willing to become a faithful worker for God? It does not matter what you believe about yourself, you can be used by God if you let Him.
Prayer: Lord, I so often feel like a reject, believing that I am of no use to You. I pray that You will take me and turn me into the work of art that only You can. Thank You for loving me and sending Christ to die for my sins. I pray my life will reflect my gratitude. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Scripture for Today: Matthew 4:18-22
