Right now you have plenty and can help those who are in need. Later, they will have plenty and can share with you when you need it. In this way, things will be equal. II Corinthians 8:14
“That makes no sense at all.” The lady sitting next to me broke through the drone of the stewardesses instruction monologue.
When I looked up to see what set her off I saw the oxygen mask dangling from the stewardess’s hand.
“If I was traveling with a child or someone who needed help I’d put their mask on first.”
I smiled again and returned to my magazine, but my thoughts were on the instructions and possible scenarios. At first thought, my seat mate’s opinion seemed unselfish and even vaguely Christ-like. But the longer I considered the instructions the more I began to see how that wisdom was rooted in truth — spiritual truth.
It is not possible to share something I don’t possess.
I had to ask myself about my priorities. There I was, representing Jesus as a Christian writer, yet not spending consistent, daily time with God. Ouch. So my challenge to you is the same as me that day—make Christ your priority and then hold on and watch what He can accomplish through you.
