Don’t be a Dead Sea

The Dead Sea takes in water but there is no outlet to the sea.  Thus, it is salty, bitter, and generally just… dead.

People who are a dead sea are always taking, using up things and become bitter.

Dead Sea people never give anything to another person and never share.

There is no, “here let me show you,” but only “let me take from you.”

Dead Sea people suck the life out of others.  They sit in classes, church, Sunday School and never give back anything but bitterness.

Don’t be a Dead Sea.

The Dead Sea is benign but still harmful — I could see an ancient famished traveler running to the beautiful blue shores thirsting for a drink with a horrible mouth full of salty, bitter nastiness.  No fish to cook, no water to drink.  Just a deceptive body of water masquerading as an oasis that provides no sustenance for life.

What are you?  Live or Dead?

“But I call to God, and the Lord saves me.”  Psalm 55:16

“Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.”  Psalm 55:22

You have two choices:  get bitter or get better.

  1. Thank you so much for this post. Life has been rough the last few months and I know I have been a bit of a Dead Sea to others. Thank you for helping me to see this and look at my own life.


  2. The dead sea does give back. It's unique make up creates one of the most healing environments in the world!
    I rather than not being a dead sea, I challenge you to not judge a book by its cover.
