Virtually every morning a couple of ladies scour the beach near us looking for beach glass. They love to collect it. Many people in the Great Lakes region like beach glass. Much of it is extremely beautiful. Some is even made into jewelry.
Of course we have beach glass largely because some people smash bottles. Ironically, the kind of people who smash bottles are the complete opposite of those people who collect beach glass. The lake turns the dangerous broken glass into smooth, safe, and beautiful beach glass.
Beach glass reminds me that what man means for evil, God means for good. I do try to keep this in mind when I read about current events.
