Do not exchange blessings with your neighbor!

  • “Drink waters out of your own cistern, and running waters out of your own well.” (Proverbs 5.15).

People tend to make two goofs: they undervalue what Jesus imparted them and are pertinacious in regard to come by what appertains to the others. This brings hot potatoes about their lives:

1 - They end up granting that which is holy to the dogs and casting their pearls before swine (Matthew 7.6). That is to say, these boons end up lost in virtue of the action of rust, moth, plagues, thieves or worst: it can come about what is stated below:

  • “Should your overflowing spring be scattered abroad as rivers of waters in the streets. Let them be only your own, and not strangers' with you.” (Proverbs 5.16,17).

2 - They ward off other people of procuring what they need to glorify the Creator.

3 - As they can’t relish what they take hold of, they end up sowing despondency, reaping more gloominess and, without being able to getting rid of this, they go through this life betraying and being betrayed (Isa 33.1), deceiving and being deceived (2Tim 3.13), hating and being hated (Titus 3.3).

Can you believe: there is no point taking possession of what belongs to other people. This isn’t useful for us. What you need to procure gaiety is already in your life; what it isn’t still certainly will be bestowed to you duly (Gal 6.9). Have much mirth in Christ Jesus.
