Stagnant Water

Open Heaven


MEMORISE: There is that scattered, and yet increaseth; and there is that witholdeth more than is meet but it tendeth to poverty. – (Proverbs 11:24).


Stagnant water stinks – not necessarily because it is dirty, but because it does not share itself with others.

A stream with flowing water on the other hand remains fresh and fragrant. If you are the kind of person who loves to hoard the good things you have, then you are stagnant water.

It may seem like a good idea to hoard your possessions so that you alone can enjoy them, but soon you will discover that you are stinking to everyone else around.

Many people like to hoard knowledge. The moment they know something that can impact others positively, they hide it and refuse to pass it on.

Any teacher will tell you that you understand a subject better the more you teach it. This means that the more knowledge you hoard, the duller you become.

If you are a student, make it a point of duty to always teach your colleagues any subject that you understand and they don’t.
