3 Pots

A very thoughtful couple recently gave me this small fountain for my office.  They’ve been paying attention!

We’re all the middle pot.  For this to function the middle pot must both receive and give.  If you’re receiving and not giving, you’ll become bloated and not healthy. Think of the Dead Sea.  Water only flows into it.

If you’re giving and not receiving, you’ll run dry.  Imagine how long it takes for the fountain to cease flowing if the water from the top stops.  You can only give out what you’re receiving.

Who is speaking into your life?

And into whose life are you speaking?

Ministry – Am I receiving? Am I giving?

Truth – Am I reading, studying, learning? Am I sharing, teaching?

Relationships – Am I listening? Am I speaking the truth in love?

“You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”  2 Tim 2:1-2

  1. Thanks for being a great mentor to us Pastor Mark! You have shown what it means to be that middle pot!

    • Thanks Wandlers! I’ve got the fountain set up in my office as a regular reminder for all of us! Miss you two, hope you’re doing well. Remember, Flagstaff is a great place to visit in the summer.
