Pastor’s Corner ~ March ’15

Many years ago a rich man had a servant whose job was to carry water each day from a distant stream to his master’s house.

The servant carried the water in two large pots, each of which hung from opposite ends of a pole he carried across his neck. One pot was in perfect condition and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream. The other pot had a crack in it, though, and always arrived at the master’s house half full.

For two years the servant delivered only one and a half pots of water to his master’s house each day. The undamaged pot was proud of itself. It had been made to carry water without leaking, and it did the job perfectly. The cracked pot, on the other hand, felt ashamed. It was miserable knowing it was not able to accomplish what it had been made to do. Still, it did the best it could, even if it was only half of what the perfect pot could do.

Finally the cracked pot spoke to the servant one day by the stream. ìI need to apologise to you, the pot said, For two years now, 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 master’s house. Because of my flaws you have to do all of this work, and you don’t get full value for your efforts.

The servant simply said, when we return to the master’s house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path.

As they made their way back to the house, the cracked pot saw the gorgeous wildflowers beside the path and was cheered a little by their beauty.

When they reached the house, the servant said to the cracked pot, Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of the path? I’ve always known about your flaw, and I took advantage of it. I planted flower seeds on your side of the path. Every day when we walked back from the stream, you watered them. For two years I’ve been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master’s table. If you weren’t just the way you are, he would not have this beauty to grace his house.logo 1

Each of us has our own unique flaws. You might say we’re all a bunch of crackpots. But if we will allow him to, the Lord will use our flaws to grace His table.

In God’s great economy, nothing goes to waste. The Lord knows what your shortcomings are, and He will use them to His own advantage and to your advantage, as well. He’ll throw some flower seeds in your path and give you a chance to water them along the way.

Don’t be ashamed or afraid of your flaws. Instead, celebrate them and remember that God has always used imperfect people to accomplish His perfect will. Paul wrote, If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness (2 Corinthians 11:30). Paul had quite a few flaws, which he freely acknowledged, but God still used him in a mighty way.

He can use you as well!

Blessings,

Rae

Readings for Advent

book coverAdvent is for adoring Jesus.

The Christmas season is one of the busiest times of the year. But it is also a season of reflection and preparation for that special day when we mark Immanuel’s coming—the arrival of our eternal God in our own frail humanity.
