"Glass half full or glass half empty". The question refers to whether you are an optimist or a pessimist. Do you see life in a positive way: "glass is half full", or in a negative way: "the glass is half empty"? An important distinction. But another valuable and life changing question to ask is this: "What is your glass filled with"? The content of your glass is important because when the glass is tipped over and the contents spilled out, they end up all over the place. A glass filled with water can be easily cleaned up with a dry towel. A glass filled with motor oil causes a bigger mess and a mess that may last for a while. A person filled with love and respect and a positive attitude toward others is not exempt from being spilled over. However, when they are tipped or knocked over, the love and respect and positiveness spills out all over other people. When a person is full of bitterness and anger and resentment and negativity and those contents are spilled out, then that is spilled all over others, as well. Furthermore, if the glass is full to the brim of these negative or positive things, when the glass is merely nudged or jostled just a little bit, the contents drip out and impact others. We may not be able to control the volume in our glass but we can control the content. Choose thankfulness. Choose appreciation. Choose love. Choose kindness. Choose to show grace. Choose the things that you want to spill out onto others to make them better and to show the love of Jesus that is inside of you.
