I remember hearing this phrase as a child and thinking about how reassuring it was. It still is, but I also started thinking about it in a different light recently.
No, God doesn’t make junk. That part is always true!
But what do we do with what God has made? Are we using it for God’s glory, or are we making it junk ourselves?
Are you spewing out words that are not pleasing to God or praising His other creatures?
Are you filling it with junk in the form of excess eating, slothfulness, drugs, or alcohol?
Are you living in a way that would otherwise not be pleasing to God by breaking His commandments?
No, God does not make junk. He creates us beautifully and wonderfully, but it is our choice what we do with this creation.
Take a moment today and think about how you are treating His creation in you.
Are you giving Him the glory through the temple He created in you? If not, honestly and prayerfully seek Him out and ask for His help to remedy the situation.
It is never too late. He is never too far away. He is only a prayer away….and He would be delighted for you to ask Him for His help
