We can’t give what we don’t have. Our cup must be overflowing. It must be full of money, time, support, love, health…. If our cup isn’t topped off, there’s no excess to give to anyone else.
If we don’t have time to do what we must do, how can we give time to another?
If we don’t have enough money to care for ourselves, how can we give to another?
If we aren’t taking care of ourselves first, how can we fully take care of anyone else?
We can’t let our wellspring dry up.
Let us fill our cups to the brim first so we can give more to others today.
