Twenty-eighth Day: "My cup runneth over."
"HE had not only a fulness of abundance, but of redundance. Those
that have this happiness must carry their cup upright, and see that it
overflow into their poor brethren's emptier vessels."
"The showers that fall upon the highest mountains should glide into
the lowest valleys."
The fact that you are a Christian may without doubt assure you a safe entrance
into heaven, but it may not mean that you are much of a blessing to your
friends about you. God makes the life to overflow, that other men's lives
may be touched with your power. For it is only the overflow of your
life that proves a blessing to your friends and kindred.
It is the overflow of the Nile that makes the valley of the Nile fruitful.
SUGGESTIONS FOR TODAY.
1. Remember that it is one thing to have life, but quite another to have
the life more abundant:
which have you?
2. God has certainly promised you that you may have both. See John 10:10.
Claim that promise now.
3. If there is no overflow, it must he because some obstacle is between
you and him. Ask him to search you and make the work complete.
4. Trust him to fill you and to keep you filled.
