Tilting the Cup

Every now and then, I have a taste for a Slurpee from 7-Eleven.

If you’re like me, once you’ve slurped the drink to the bottom of the cup, you tilt the cup, poke the drink with your spoon straw to soften the remains, and then sip some more. When this no longer works, you scoop out as much as you can with the spoon straw. When this no longer works, you remove the top from the cup, tilt the cup at a forty-five-degree angle, and then tap the bottom of the cup to drink the rest.

By any means necessary, you get what’s inside the cup to come outside the cup.

Likewise, God is determined to get what’s inside you—your potential, your possibility, your idea, your gift—to come out. Therefore, if you’re not exercising your gifts or making use of your talents, then God is not finished with you yet.
