The teapot symbolizes how we are vessels filled with life and gifts and how we pour them out or keep them in is up to us. The teapot also has a mirror shine.
One child is looking into the reflection while the others are looking away. God gives us opportunities to really see ourselves with the purpose of recognizing how much we need Him. Later as we grow in Him, we are encouraged by our progress and by how much we begin to look like Him. The others illustrate how many of us are too busy or purposely look away from what God puts before us. Our vessel ultimately reflects our insides and our soul. Hopefully we can learn to look for what God wants us to see.
