Your Monday Selfie
As we go about our daily living, we often visit the bank or an ATM machine to deposit and withdraw cash to handle our affairs. However, the bank doesn't allow us to take out more than we have deposited. If we have overdraft protection, we may be allowed to cover our overrages with a line of credit or savings. If we don't have protection, the transaction falls short and we end up with insufficient funds.
The same can be said in our spiritual lives. We withdraw hope, faith, love, patience and courage every day. Yet we don't take the time to make deposits of God's word and prayer. Eventually we end up falling short of our calling and purpose in life. Yet, God's grace, mercy and unmerited favor covers us in spite of our shortcomings. As you begin the month of October, it's time to take an assessment of this year. Take the time to fill your cup and let it overflow.
