This morning as I walked into work, I stopped by the break room and filled up my Tervis Tumbler with ice and water. As I stood there filling it, the water would not stop. My cup literally ran over with excess. How lucky!
It’s World Water Day – a day to spend thinking about water. I know this is an issue that keeps staying on the front of my mind. I often think about how much of an overlooked blessing it is to have running water at our fingertips everywhere we go! Its something we should not take lightly, because so many don’t have it.
Today grab a pint or 6 of clean, clear, bacteria free water and be thankful that you have it. It’s an incredible delight. You may also want to check out the so many organizations out there who are helping bring water to others, like water.org, or runforwater.net, or HHI, among a few.
Then consider your spirit? Are you also counting the blessing of having life-giving spiritual water so close to you and so accessible? Seriously! It’s right there waiting for you just like the tap water . Make sure you take a moment on this day to consider taking a big thirst quenching sip of that water as well.
13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14 NIV
And remember so many don’t have it.
