I show people this jar and explain why I keep it on my kitchen widow sill. It is to keep me focused on God. You see when you dump out the contents you have to be careful how you put them back in. If you put the rice in first, then try to put the walnut in, you spill rice over the side. But if you put the walnut in first then carefully put the rice in all the rice will go in.
The walnut represents God and the rice the things of our life. When we seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, all these things will be given to me as well. Matt. 6: 33
- jelly jar with lid
- walnut, pecan, or anything about that size
Putting It All Together
1) Put the nut into the jar.
2) Fill to the brim with rice.
3) Place lid on jar.
4) You can pretty it up by tying a ribbon around the lid. Or you can cut a piece of clothe a little bigger then the lid. Place the clothe over the lid then screw on the band. (This works with canning lids and bands.)
You know that I keep mine on my kitchen window sill. Where are you going to keep yours?
Seek Him first!
