Westminster Chimes - July 2016

Dear Friends in Christ,
I remember ever so well my visit to the Holy Land in 1994. During our time there we visited both the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea. Talk about a study in contrasts. The Sea of Galilee has an abundance of fish and lush vegetation surrounding its banks. During the summer months tourists flock to the beaches. The water coming into this sea is the water from the Jordan River which then flows out of it and continues to the south.
This water flows into the Dead Sea which is aptly named because it can support no life. There are no fish and no vegetation grows upon the banks. The mineral content and salinity make the water unfit for human consumption. The River Jordan flows into both seas. What makes the difference?
It really is quite simple. The Sea of Galilee gives even as it has received. In contrast, the Dead Sea receives but does not give. It releases nothing except the water which evaporates. The water is stagnant and because of this no life can be sustained.
This really is the story of life. When we choose to give even as we have received our lives flourish and are continually nourished. When we choose to keep for ourselves that which has been given to us by God to share with others, our lives are diminished. Live a life that will flourish and be nourished by the spirit of giving.
Yours in Christ,
