Recently I wrote and published the article, The Cracked Pot and Embracing the Beauty of Our Flaws. To offer the information, within my articles in a different format I create video presentations. Below is a brief excerpt from the article.
“I have been thinking about a parable. I am not sure who is the author of this parable. To the author of this parable I say, thank you. You are a very wise person. The Cracked Pot
The Cracked Pot has been an encouragement to me, as I have struggled with feeling like a cracked pot.
In the event that you have also struggled with feeling like a cracked pot, I would invite you to read the parable. As you read the parable may you begin to embrace the beauty of your flaws?
The Cracked Pot
“A Water Bearer in India had two large pots; each hung on each end of a pole, which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and 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 master’s 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 pot’s full of water in his master’s house.
Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect to the end 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.”
“Why?” asked the bearer. “What are you ashamed of?”
