The Two Seas


There are two seas in Palestine.  One sea is fresh.  Fish live in it.  Trees and bushes grow near it.  Children splash and play in it.  The river Jordan flows into this sea from the north with sparkling water from the hills.  People build their homes near it.  Every kind of life is happier because it is there. It is called the Sea of Galilee. The same river Jordan flows south out of it into another sea. Here there are no fish, no green things, no children playing, no homes being built.  Stale air hangs above its waters, and neither man nor beast will drink of it.  It is called the Dead Sea.  What makes the difference between these neighbor seas?  Not the Jordan River.  It empties the same good water into both.  Nor is it the soil or the countryside.

The difference is that the Sea of Galilee receives water but does not keep it.  For every drop that flows in, another drop flows out.  The giving and the receiving go on in equal measure.  The Dead Sea hoards its income.  Every drop it gets, it keeps.  The Sea of Galilee gives and gives.  The Dead Sea gives nothing.

There are also two kinds of people in this world–those Dead Sea people who take without giving back, and the givers who remain fresh and vibrant by freely giving service and sharing of themselves.

If you want to give back, I encourage you to become a member of my WIN Global Community(You can learn more by clicking HERE), where we not only learn and grow together weekly, but we actively give back to a sister in need around the globe with every membership. If you feel called to serve, I invite you to join me!

I send you my love……
