Overflow: What Goes In Must Come Out

Maybe life is a bit more straightforward than we like to think. Sure there are great mysteries and some things are complex and nuanced. Of course there’s grace and gray and Don Draper. But then there’s just the straightforward simple. Like say…the concept of “input = output.” What we put in, we get out. What goes in, must come out. Just natural biology, folks. Jesus says as much in Matthew 12:32-35 when he says, “from the overflow of one’s heart, a person speaks.” Interesting, huh? We all overflow something. And that overflow becomes someone else’s inflow. See how that works? And it’s true, isn’t it? At the office? In your home? In road rage? So our overflow depends on our inflow, doesn’t it? Because what goes in, must come out.
