Sometimes the oil in the bottle may seem so small and I wonder if it is wise just to hold on to it, but somehow I come across another whose is completely empty. As We engage in conversation in whatever simple terms and as I begin to pour my little oil the flow seems to increase.
There is always another who has it worse than you and yes there are others who have it better than you but if only we can keep pouring whatever we can, the oil will keep flowing. It doesn’t make sense in the natural but it just must be kingdom economics, after all a little match light goes far in a room full of darkness.
Sometimes I become inward looking and find so many needs but as I begin to look out I realise just how much I can give. Don’t ever assume the one giving you a smile of hope is completely sorted, they may just have decided to pour that little oil of theirs.
In this season of goodwill May we give someone a hug, a smile, prayer, present and best of all our attention. The oil will stay as it is if not in use, after all the flow can only be in the pouring.
For your consideration
