A Canal or A Reservoir: Do not try to be more generous than God

A Canal or A Reservoir: Do not try to be more generous than God | lookingjoligood.blog

“The man who is wise, therefore, will see his life as more like a reservoir than a canal. The canal simultaneously pours out what it receives; the reservoir retains the water till it is filled, then discharges the overflow without loss to itself. … You too must learn to await this fullness before pouring out your gifts, do not try to be more generous than God.”
“The Two Operations of the Holy Spirit”
Bernard of Clairvaux, a 12th century French abbot, a reformer of the Cistercian order
