Goodbye to one of my favorite coffee cups, the mermaid Starbucks cup. I’ve knocked it about often enough in my early morning stupor to cause the glaze at the handle to get a small crack at the seam. My coffee leaketh out, so to speak. Can’t have that!
As for our faith in Christ, if we keep it all contained so it never escapes into the world, but only feeds us alone, what good is it? Maybe we need to be more of a leaky vessel, or a cracked cup, to share the goodness of God with those who need a pick me up. Coffee for Christ! Christ for the World!
2 Corinthians 4:7–“But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us.”
