Into the Beautiful ~ One Crock Pot’s Journey

I have been holding on to my crock pot for sentimental reasons. It belonged to my mom. I only own a handful of things that belonged to her. My crock pot is over 20 years old and still works.

A couple of years ago the lid handle broke off and I super glued it back on. Last year, one of the handles on the side of the pot fell off. Since then, I have been managing just fine with my one-handled pot. The other night, while taking the lid off, the piece I mended a couple of years ago snapped off again.

I sighed. I guess it really is time for a new crock pot.  The other night, I carried my crock pot out to the trash. Yesterday, I purchased a new one.

My reluctance to toss my old and broken down looking pot to the curb reminded me of something: appearances are deceiving. We are quick to judge based solely on what our eyes can see.

If you were to have come to my house for dinner the other night and seen my pitiful looking crock pot you might have been tempted to think…Girl, you need a new crock pot!
And, there would be truth in your assumption.

But you don’t see the whole story.  You don’t see what I see.

I wonder if that’s the way it is with our Savior.  We look at His decision to come down to earth and we scratch our heads. Why in the world would He want to come down into this world and save a bunch of broken down, pitiful crock pots like us?

And God says…Yes, broken crock pots. But, you don’t see the whole story. You don’t see what I see.

I’m thankful God showed up offering us an eternal solution. His super glue never wears off!
