We know that our vehicles get better gas mileage when they have a full tank of gas. Yet, with the gas prices fluctuating, you might opt to only fill half a tank each time to protect the wallet! I wonder: are there other areas in our lives we are only filling half full? Are our spiritual tanks only half-filled or running on a full tank?
How do we “fill” our spiritual tanks? We take time to worship, partake in communion, and attend Sunday school. Is our tank full or half-full? How can we fill the rest of our tank and keep it full? When our spiritual tanks are full, we also will get better mileage. Filling our spiritual tanks can happen in a variety of ways. As I ponder the ways I fill my tank and ways to keep it full, how are you filling your spiritual tank? Let’s fill those spiritual tanks together, so we can keep growing and sharing the love and ministry of our Heavenly Father.
