Dead Sea

by Berni Dymet

Prov. 10:4-5 A slack hand causes poverty, but the hand of the diligent makes rich. A child who gathers in summer is prudent, but a child who sleeps in harvest brings shame.

I spent half a lifetime trying to fill myself up. With stuff. Things. Experiences. All designed to satisfy me. They never did. 

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to a man called SD Gordon. Back in the late 1800s he wrote a book called "Quiet Talks on Power". In it, he uses a simple and powerful example to explain that when we expect everything to flow in, and nothing to flow out it doesn't work. He uses the picture of the Dead Sea. Now the Dead Sea is that body of water where all the rivers flow in, but none of them flow out. And as a result - it's Dead.  Nothing can live in it. Not a thing. No fish. No plants. No birds. And the water is incredibly hard and brackish.

He makes this point in the book, if we expect all of God's blessings to flow in and none of them to flow out….then our lives become like the Dead Sea…dead. 

It's worth a thought…
