Accidentally On Purpose

God does not make mistakes. He does things in His own way, by His design, and we do not have to understand it But I sure respect it!!




An elderly Chinese woman had two 
large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck. 
One of the pots had a crack in 
it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered 
a full portion of water. 

At the end of the long walks from 
the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half 
full. 

For a full two years this went 
on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half 
pots of water.. 

Of course, the perfect pot was 
proud of its accomplishments. 
But the poor cracked pot was ashamed 
of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only 
do half of what it had been made to do. 

After two years of what it perceived 
to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the 
stream. 

‘I am ashamed of myself, because 
this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way 
back to your house.’ 

The old woman smiled, ‘Did you 
notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, 
but not on the other pot’s side?’ 

‘That’s because I have always 
known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your 
side of the 
path, and every day while we walk 
back, you water them.’ 

For two years I have been able 
to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table. 

Without you being just the way 
you are, there would not be this beauty to 
grace the house.’ 

Each of us has our own unique 
flaw. But it’s the cracks and flaws we each have that make 
our lives together so very interesting and rewarding. 

You’ve just got to take each person 
for what they are and look for the good in them.
