Tippy the Teapot
Tippy the Teapot is a children's story that is also for adults. We are all like Tippy who is crying out to be something useful. Mr. Potter can be compared to the answering spirit of God. He makes Tippy into a new creature. We can be changed from nothing into something. But in the process, we must pass through the fire.
What greater goal in life is there than to be acceptable in the eyes of the master potter?
