16th Sunday After Pentecost

A blessed Sunday morning 5th Avenue Family & Friends, 

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.” – Psalm 23: 5

Mediating on this ancient scripture, memories came flooding back to me when I came across a poem entitled “Drinking from My Saucer.”  The poem reflects on this quaint habit and how it served as a metaphor for a life overflowing with blessings.

A cup that overflows with God’s goodness and generosity will naturally spill out into the world and affect those around us, or at least it should. As God is generous with us, he expects us to be generous in giving to others.

“Give, and it will be given to you

And as our cups overflow with the goodness and faithfulness of God, so should our hearts overflow with praise as well—as the peace, hope, joy, and love of God that we share freely with others.

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”  Amen. (Romans 15:13)

God bless each of you richly,

Pastor Clarissa
