If You Don’t Have It, Borrow It

If you don't have it, borrow it

I was listening to Rob Bell speak today and I heard him say “If you don’t have it, borrow it from someone who does.”

So what are you lacking today?

hope? peace? guts? positivity? gumption? ideas? energy? vision? will power? patience? gratitude? perspective? compassion?

or maybe you just need a hand…

Find someone who’s got it and borrow.

Even if it is just standing next to her for a few minutes… you should be able to borrow enough in that time to get you through the day, and eventually you’ll get a great chance to loan some of whatever it is that you do have to someone else who needs it.
