The official looking letter said mandatory water restrictions. A few months ago we had more rain than we wanted. But lately it's been very dry and very, very hot. The two problems combine to heavily tax the local water supply.
Even when we aren't pressured with an immediate shortage, it's beneficial to safeguard resources. In addition to water, we can limit energy consumption, recycle paper, metal, and plastics, and spend carefully. These actions serve well to help extend their life.
But there is a resource that has no need to be conserved. It fact, the more frugal we are with it, the worse things become. Conserve water, electricity, or even viewpoints, but not love. All you need to do is turn on the television to know the world needs it more than ever.
Lessons for the Journey:
Love was never intended to be conserved. Unlike water, energy, or natural resources, its limits are boundless. Love is supernatural. The more of it you share the more of it you have to give. Don't hold back. Don't wait until it's deserved. Just give it away.
"And may the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow and overflow, just as our love for you overflows."
