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?
