I just watched a video that a school did to support someone with cancer. It was really touching & I bawled like a baby. We are so very fortunate that we live in this community. We rally together to support those with cancer and other life threatening illnesses. We pray long and hard for friends and loved ones who are fighting for their lives. We collect donations, run marathons, sell chili, have pie auctions, add them to prayer lists…anything and everything we can to support them and try to extend their earthly life. And all of these things are wonderful! But what are we doing about their eternal life? Do we pray as hard for the healing of their soul as we do the healing of their body? Do we invite them to come to church with us? Do we tell them about Jesus? The one thing that they need to have life more abundant and we fail to discuss that with them. So maybe in addition to all the wonderful acts of kindness that we do….maybe we could offer them a drink of water.
Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” John 4:9-11 NKJV
