Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. I am honored by your presence. Earlier this evening I felt led to share the parable of the cracked pot with a group of my friends.
The message of the cracked pot appeared to have a profound impact on several of my friends.
I am not sure who is the author of the parable of the cracked pot, however to the author I would like to say thank you. You are a very wise person.
Because the message of the parable is so very powerful I decided to share the parable of the Cracked Pot with you.
May you be encouraged to just be … yourself.
The Parable of 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 masters 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?”
Please read Part 2 for context. Thank you.
