"Extraordinary Lesson from an Ordinary Life"

The Broken Pot


by
Kelly Davis


I read this story about 18 years ago, I don't know who wrote it but it immediately became a big part of my testimony as I could totally relate to it.

Once upon a time there were 2 clay pots. These were no ordinary pots for they could talk. One was beautiful and exquisite and the other had several major cracks in it.

The beautiful pot would taunt the broken pot every day. It said things like "I don't know why they keep you around here. You are ugly and broken and can't even do what a pot is supposed to do."

Every night the broken pot would cry. One day when the servant came to draw water the broken pot told him, "Just throw me away. I am not decorative or useful and I can't even do the one thing a pot is supposed to do! "

The servant just smiled and said watch the path. When they got back to the Master's house the broken pot said again, "Throw me away! I did it again, as much as I try I can't even hold my water!"

The other pot smirked. The servant said, "Did you watch the path?"

"Yes" the broken pot said weakly.

"Then you must have seen the beautiful flowers along the path. You see, I use you to water the beautiful flowers that grace the Master's table!! " said the servant.

Friend, I don't know where you are today but let me assure you that each one of us are flawed broken pots. And even if you feel you are not doing what others think you should do, just know that God is using you to leak out His love, mercy and grace in order to 'water the flowers' that grace His table!

Be encouraged today!!

I am a Georgia born and bred 44 year old. I am the youngest daughter of a Godly Baptist preacher and his wife who were in ministry for over 45 years. I am on my second marriage of 15 years to a wonderful man named Frank who just about 6 years ago surrendered to the call to preach himself.

We have 2 fabulous sons, Austin and Drew who are 22 and 12. I have worked clerically in the medical field for 26 years using my job as a means to fulfill my calling of pouring into and encouraging women.

In 2007 I started writing when my great nephew was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I started writing prayer requests and emailing them to family and friends. Through God my nephew's story went through not only Georgia but all the way to China and other places in the US as well.

God has given me and my husband a passion to disciple and encourage Christians by being transparent and simply doing life with them and showing others the love of Christ. In September 2015 God very clearly showed us our ministry was in Arkansas so we packed up our stuff and moved to Bismark Arkansas with faith and very little else. We had no jobs or prospects but God has provided us with great jobs and all of our needs.

Now God has blessed me with a job as a school secretary giving me extra time off to be with my family. I look forward to sharing some of the things God has shown me through the years.
