The Sermon on the Mount helps show what it means to become a “new creature in Christ” (2 Cor. 5:17). A secular illustration for this new life, which is included in this book, is found in an African story entitled “The Dirty Basket.” According to this tale, a young man became a Christian but soon learned he was still subject to strong temptations. One day this recent convert went to his grandfather to discuss his many failings. The grandfather suggested his grandson take a basket to the river and get some drinking water. The grandson looked at the basket and said it was dirty. The holes in this basket would prevent him from bringing back much water. The grandfather insisted his relative do as he had asked. The young man made six attempts to bring back water in this filthy basket and each time he failed. After returning to his grandpa and complaining about the basket, the grandfather pointed out how clean the basket had become. Also, the reeds from which the basket was made had swelled from all the water. The Sermon on the Mount helps dirty and unholy people “keep putting water in the basket” to conform more and more to the image of Christ.
