December 8th Devotional

There is an old story of an elderly man who always carried a little can of oil with him everywhere he went, and when he would go through a door that squeaked , he would squirt a little oil on the hinges. If he encountered a gate that was hard to open, he would oil the latch. And so he went through life, lubricating all the difficult places, making it easier for all those who came after him. People called the man eccentric, strange, and crazy, but he went steadily on, often refilling his can of oil when it was nearly empty, and oiling all the difficult places he found.

My takeaway: Be the man with the oil can. Care for the path you walk on so that you leave it better than you found it. Easier for the person coming after you.

Sharing is Caring!
