"If then you are wise, you will show yourself rather as a reservoir than as a canal. A canal spreads abroad water as it receives it, and a reservoir waits until it is filled before overflowing, and thus without loss to itself communicates its superabundant water. In the Church at the present day we have many canals but few reservoirs." —Bernard of Clairvaux
Originally commissioned by Food for the Hungry to spiritually nourish staff members serving on the front lines of international relief work, The Reservoir is an accessible weekday devotional for renewal and growth in Jesus. Written by Renovaré team members including Chris Hall, Carolyn Arends, Brian Morykon, and Justine Olawsky, it first covers foundational questions—What is spiritual formation? What is my picture of God? What is my picture of myself?—then dives into in the six great Christian traditions outlined by Richard Foster’s book Streams of Living Water.
Each entry contains a quote, thought, Scripture passage, and questions for reflection or discussion to help you “live in the overflow” and become a reservoir rather than a canal.
