It’s a simple image: if we pour more water into a bowl than the bowl can contain, the water will spill out of the bowl.
Please let us be such a vessel. Please pour so much of your grace, love, and mercy into us that they spill out of us.
But don’t let that overflow be wasted; let it pour out of us directly onto other people.
Once others experience some of that overflow, fill them up so much with your grace, love, and mercy that they spill out of them onto other people.
And so on, and so on, and so on …
