Prayer #83: Saturated

When one's cup runneths over, where exactly does it spill? Can I scoop it up with a spare glass and stick it in the fridge? Maybe use it to water the plants or make a nice chicken stock?

I ask because You don't seem like the type of deity who would want good joy to go to waste. So many people's cups have leaks -- who am I to hoard a bowl's worth?

Just doesn't seem right. Or fair.

So I'd like to propose a reuse program. When my cup is runnething over, I will first thank You for all the good things You put in it. I will then drink the cup so all that love and comfort and worthfulness is sloshing around inside me. And then, fortified by the one cup, I will help pour the runneth-off into other people's empty mugs.

In doing so, we'll eliminate a lot of waste and inefficiency and get that joy where it needs to be -- in the cups of people who need it.

What do You think? Can You stand behind this project? Care to endorse me?

Amen.

    Dear Sinner, If you wish to speak to me in old english, please be consistent and proper.
    Re par 1 When one's cup runneth over,whither doth it spill?
    Re par 4a When my cup runneth
    4b I will help that which runneth over
    I do not consider these to be agressive sins, but are caused by ignorance of the King's English, so I will not hold them against you. Love, God
