The same is true of Christians. Each of us receives an inflow of blessings from God. When we worship, pray, and study His Word, we receive gifts of talents, knowledge, wisdom, monetary blessings and all manner of spiritual gifts. However, if we do not use our gifts to bless others, our faith becomes stagnant and dead. Like the Dead Sea, God's gifts remain bottled up and do not flow out in a stream of love and blessings for others.
How much better it is to open ourselves to receive blessings from God through worship, prayer, and Bible study and then let God's love flow through us to those around us by using the blessings we receive in service to others.
