Proverbs 13:1

The stronger person can help the weaker person.

Only if the weaker is willing.

There was a saying among the school social workers I heard when I worked at Outreach, Inc. that has always stuck with me:

“I can’t care more than you do.”

No movement will actually occur if this is the case.

You giving yourself to God is everything.

As one book title cleverly states >>

Jesus+Nothing=Everything

John 4:13-14

Jesus said, “Everyone who drinks from this water will get thirsty again. But whoever drinks from the water that I will give them will never get thirsty again-ever! In fact, the water I will give them will become a well of water springing up within them for eternal life.”

When we drink from the Source for our thirst in life, a well is formed in our own inner self continually pouring out life. Filling yourself with truth and goodness will cause a living spring of truth and goodness to flow from you and comfort yourself as well as others.

We are at our best when our good works are simply an overflow from our inner self being filled with the divine presence.

Focus on the roots not the fruits.
