You take your favourite jar of goodness out of the fridge. You open it. And it’s all but empty. Mildly frustrated you scrape and scrape the bottom of the container. And in the end, barely cover your toast.
To spread something, you’ve got to have it to spread.
To spread happiness, you’ve got to have happiness.
To spread excellence,
Or even love.
You first need to have some to spread.
And the more you have, the more you can give.
We can’t spread these things if we are fully empty.
If you find yourself scraping the bottom of the barrel, maybe it’s time you take a break, refresh, or just get near people who have it.
Replenish, so that you can provide all that goodness, that people around you are longing for.
