Story Of The Cracked Pot…

A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole that he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.

At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water to his house.

Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. “I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you. I have been able to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don’t get full value from your efforts,” the pot said.

The bearer said to the pot, “Did you notice that there were flowers on your side of the path but not on the other pot’s side? That’s because I have always known about your flaw, and I planted flower seeds on your side of the path. Every day while we walk back, you’ve watered them. For two years, I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house.”

Have you dressed yourself properly today?

Are you wearing the fruits of the spirit?

Your suit or dress speaks of your taste in clothes

But your demeanor and behavior speak of your heart and mind

Do you conduct yourself in love, joy, peace and patience?

Does your stance indicate kindness, gentleness, and self-control?

Have you dressed yourself properly today?

Beginnings…

Posted on Updated on

 

On the second day

I made the sky and pulled back

the waters from it.

 

~~~

 

But on the sixth day

I made them, man and woman.

And the serpent crawled!

Talking…

There’s no mystery

as to how you speak with me.

Just empty your heart.

Do not be afraid

nor worried in mind or soul.

For I am your Friend.

Listen to my words…have the faith of a child

Be curious and seek after me

When I answer you, accept what I have said

And follow Me without question

For the child has no fear, they trust who is leading them

Take note and learn from these young ones

For by their actions they teach all people

Listen to my words…have the faith of a child

The Bible…Is It Truth? (Video)

Posted on

 

Do we believe the bible to be true just because it says it is, (2 Timothy 3:16-17)? Or is there more to it than that…

This video explains how history proves the facts and accuracy of the original biblical manuscripts dating back centuries. It shares prophetic statements made in certain books of the bible, which man could not have known unless inspired by a Supreme Being. The facts presented here give logical reasoning to the bible as absolute truth.

It is only about ten minutes long, and is well worth watching. Take the time to investigate this information and let us build our faith by what it shows us!
