Broken and Spilled Out
When we give of ourselves, we are rewarded back... usually more. People are like flowers, when we water them with love and kindness, they perk up and stand up straighter. We all need sprinkled with a compliment or two and you will usually get one in return.
'Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.' Colossians 4:5-6
'Mary, one of Jesus' followers, poured out a bottle of nard, an extremely expensive perfume, on his feet, prompting concern from others, but praise from Jesus himself.' Mary literally watered Jesus with a perfume. Her sacrifice was her way of showing her love to Jesus.
Do you sacrifice your time and possessions to show love to others?
