Are you hanging on to the tatters of old blessings? C. S. Lewis said. “Properly bedded down in a past which we do not miserably try to conjure back, [God’s blessings] will send up exquisite growths. Leave the bulbs alone, and the new flowers will come up. Grub them up and hope, by fondling and sniffing, to get last year’s blooms, and you will get nothing.” Luke 6:38a, b: “Give, and it will be given to you: A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be poured into your lap.” God can’t pour his blessings into hands that are grasping yesterday’s gifts.
