From the Bottle to the Cup
The sippy cup is given to the toddler in the chair~
Who looks with confusion because the bottle isn’t there.
The cry initiates a call to feed~
Then the toddler yelps "who will fill my need?".
His Little Hand reaches out and picks up the cup~
Pursing his lips on the lid and he drinks it all up.
Now a glass is given to the growing child~
Who accidentally spills it, which has become his style.
The child tries again and is able to take a drink~
No more nipples or lids is what he thinks.
From a babe to a toddler and now a grown up~
Nursed from the bottle to a cup.
Where did this cup come from?
The One who drank from it first~
The Baby in the manger
Who once was nursed.
He grew into a toddler and then into a man~
Who drank from the cup, which was His Father’s plan.
A sip that cost Him His life, a sacrifice He made~
“Let this cup pass from me”, was what He prayed.
But He drank it at His last supper, for you and for me~
Because of mercy and grace, this cup set us free.
From the cradle to the cross, the babe grew up~
The choice is now yours, from the bottle to the cup.
To fill it with the Water that will quench all your thirst~
With the One who came to drink from it first.
What are you filling your cup with, to try to fill all your needs?
Whatever that may be
Fast from that today!
"but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst.
Indeed, the water
I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
