And Jesus looking upon him loved him, and said to him, “You lack one thing; go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” At that saying his countenance fell, and he went away sorrowful; for he had great possessions. (vv21-22)

Sharing and support is also the way potential is meant to be used. Even as the beauty of a symphony is minimized when each instrument’s part is played in isolation, so the wealth of our potential is minimized when we do not share it with others. Potential is maximized and fulfilled only when it is shared. This sharing of potential is God’s way of bringing to pass His plans and purposes for men and women.

God shares His Potential

God’s nature is built around sharing and giving. Before the world was created, everything existed in Him. All that we have seen, now see, and yet will see comes from Him. God could have kept all this stuff inside Him, but it wouldn’t have benefited Him there. He had to release it through creativity before the beauty and power of His potential could be revealed.

Everything God called into being He gave a purpose that meshes with the larger purpose of the world. Every animal, bird, fish, insect, reptile, plant, and tree is connected to the whole of creation. If one species becomes extinct, its death disrupts and imparts the entire eco-system. In essence, each part of God’s world in some way balances and enriches the rest (Dr. Myles Munroe)

PRAYER LINE: Lord Jesus, I wait to live for You. May Your life and love flow through me as I go about my duties today so that others may see You through me and be drawn to the living water.


Jesus is a never-ending supply of living water for a parched world.
