Devotions from Judy’s heart

The other day I was using a funnel to pour a big jar of olive oil into a smaller container. I started by using a large funnel but realized it was too big for the smaller hole in the oil bottle. I noticed some of the oil spilling down the sides of the bottle. But I had a smaller funnel and it fit perfectly and I could pour in the rest of the oil without spilling a drop. I thought of how sometimes we may try to pour into others things that they are not ready for….it doesn’t fit at the time for them and much of what we try to teach is lost. But if we pour out what is for the season they are in and for where they are in their journey, it will be taken in and used. Let us not “overload” others with things that were not meant for them at the time..“Righteous lips are the delight of a king, and he loves him who speaks what is right.” Prov. 16:13
