Wipe Away

I give up; how DO crafters get those miniature ships inside bottles?

Maybe the answer is like a corny elephant joke.

How do they get ships inside bottles?

Answer: Very carefully!

There’s another interesting scenario. People have been known to leave messages inside small bottles and cast them into the sea. Many are discovered far, far away.

It seems that mankind has stored a variety of things in bottles of different sizes, shapes and colors. Jim Croce sang of putting ‘Time in a Bottle.’

Maybe you have a hobby of collecting bottles.

If so, I don’t believe you’ve found any with tears stored inside.

Speaking of tears… In disgust, some have spoken the cliché, ‘I’m not going to waste any tears on him (or her).’

If you’re God’s child, no tears are wasted.

“You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book (Psalm 56:8 NKJV)?”

We move from tears in a bottle to tears on Jesus’ feet.

Jesus said, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head (Luke 7:44 NKJV).”

The woman wiped away dust from Jesus’ feet with her tears.

God will wipe away tears of sadness from our eyes.

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes (Revelation 7:17b NKJV).”
