Marvelous Monday: What Kind of Water are YOU Drinking?
Now you city folks may say the exact opposite. You may appreciate that fresh chlorinated taste. It means that your water is clean. I've heard well water called 'dirty' because it's not filtered, treated, and bled of all its good nutrients. Do you know what is in that stuff? No wonder the kids who are from the country are a little bit different!
Whichever water you choose as the best is going to depend upon your preconceived opinions. If you grew up with city water, you most likely will pick that one. If you were raised on well water, then that will be your beverage of choice. Much like the water in the verse above. Jesus was offering the Samaritan woman 'living water'. This wasn't just any water. It would quench her thirst so she'd never be thirsty again. She was raised on city water so she didn't know what he meant with this so called 'living water'.
Are you willing to accept the 'living water' that He has offered to you? If you have, then what are you doing with it? Are you hoarding it for yourself in fear that you may need it one day when your well goes dry? Or are you sharing it with others so that everyone around you has a chance for this eternal water? He has offered you the opportunity to choose which kind of water you want to drink from. I, for one, choose the 'living water' please. Served up with a side of eternal life--what about you?
