 These were potters, and those that dwelt among the plants and hedges: there they dwelt with the king for his work.
-1 Chron. iv 23

Potters were not the very highest grade of workers, but "the king" needed potters, and therefore they were in royal service, although the material upon which they worked was nothing but clay. We, too, may be engaged in the most menial part of the Lord's work, but it is a great privilege to do anything for "the king:" and therefore we will abide in  our calling...

These potters and gardeners had royal company,... although among hedges and plants, they dwelt with the king there. In all works of faith we may count upon Jesu's fellowship. Ye unknown workers who are occupied for your Lord amid the dirt and the wretchedness of the lowest of the low, be of good cheer, for jewels have been found upon dunghills ere now, earthen pots have been filled with heavenly treasure, and ill weeds have been transformed into precious flowers. Dwell ye with the king for his work...
-C.H. Spurgeon
