Romans 9:20-21 “Who art thou that repliest against God?”

Romans 9:20-21
20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
-We all have an idea in our minds of our perfect selves; the way we would look or be if we had our way.  Sometimes this can be healthy and lead us to make sound decisions in terms of nutrition and fitness.  Other times it can spur us to “modify” our bodies in very unnatural ways.  Consider that any such unnatural changes are an affront to God because we are essentially asking “Why hast thou made me thus?”  Worse yet we are telling God that we can do a better job than He did.  Never forget that just because we disagree with God on something, it doesn’t mean He is wrong.  “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4)
