If you were walking back from a well carrying a bucket of water and someone jostled you, there could be spilled from that bucket only that which it contained.
As you walk along life’s way, people are constantly bumping you. If your heart is full of ill will, bad temper and ugly disposition, only those things will be spilled. However, if you are full of life, joy and happiness, then you will spill a smile or pleasant remark.
You can spill from your bucket only that which it contains. I heard a Gospel preacher say, “Whatever is in the well of your hearts will come up in the bucket of your lives.” That statement is very true.
Matt 5:43-45 “Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for He makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”
