A Lesson from a Vase
My daughter was in the process of removing the tulips and daffodils from a vase, when I particularly noticed the unusual beauty of the open tulips. Once the flowers were removed, the empty vase was handed over to me at the sink. As I was proceeding to wash it out, my attention was drawn to the fact that this empty vase was not at all pretty. As I was pondering this, the Lord brought to my mind how we are all like this vase. In and of ourselves, we are not spiritually attractive, but when the flowers of God’s grace are put into our souls, we become full of spiritual beauty. Oh, let us be filled with God’s flowers!
