It’s what’s inside that counts

Growing up we were poor.  How poor were we?  So poor the rats had to go next door to eat.

Many times when a school friend would come over  I was a little embarrassed if they asked for water, because our drinking glasses were jelly jars or any type of empty  jar we had. Funny thing was that none of my friends were embarrassed, they thought it was cool. They would say all they wanted was water it didn’t matter what type of container it was in.

Now, we have matching glasses, and guess what the water taste the same as it did from those old mason jars. You see it does not matter the shape or size of the container, what counts is what’s inside.

Many Christian take great pride on the outward appearance and very little thought of what’s inside.

2 Cor. 4:7 But we have this treasure (salvation) in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not us.
