The Jars

The preacher placed two identical jars on the table next to the pulpit. He quoted 1 Samuel 16:7 ” The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

These jars came from the same factory, were made of the same materials, and can hold the same amount. But, they are different he explained.

Then he upset one, and it oozed out honey. He turned over the other, and vinegar spilled out. When a jar is upset, whatever is in it comes out.

Until the jars were upset, they looked alike. The difference was within, and could not be seen. When they were upset, their contents were revealed.

Until we are upset we put on a good front. But when we are upset, we reveal our innermost thoughts, and attitudes, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

What if someone tipped you over today?
What would flow out?
Would you reveal the honey of grace, and patience, or the vinegar of anger and sarcasm?

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. (Peter 4:8.)

Have a terrific day knowing that the one who upsets you may be just looking for some honey.
