make room

Thursday July 30th, Ephesians 3: 19 And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you'll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ's love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.  Learning to share with others from the abundance of our blessing does not lessen our blessing, it increases and enhances our blessings.  One trouble humanity seems to have is that we often see our blessings in material terms only, and yes, materially speaking, more for others who do not have enough, may, at times, mean less for us. In the long run however, more for others will mean more for everyone.  We live in a world that does not trust God and God’s plan.  In not trusting God’s plan and the abundance of God’s blessings, we hoard.    We have trouble trusting the fact that the more we give, the more we receive.  We keep thinking in terms of a glass of water, pour some off for others and there is less in the glass.  In God’s world, it is only when we pour off for others that the glass begins to fill with God’s blessings.  Sometimes we have to make room in our lives to receive.   When we are full of ourselves there is less room for God.
