Spiritual Sponges

During quiet time I read about us being like spiritual sponges.

The more we are humble, open and receptive, the more we will be able to absorb, the more teachable we will be. Thus, we are able to receive and get more input.

The Lord also tells us to be a blessing to others.

So what's next?

He will have to squeeze the sponges in order for them to let go of the blessings in them so that others in turn will receive it.

12 Do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. 1 Peter 4

A sponge will not be very useful if it refuses to let go of its contents when squeezed or pressed.

How willing are you to give up and surrender whenever God 'presses or squeezes' you?
