Life Water

29 02 2008

I don’t know why I was thinking this but, don’t you hate it when someone won’t share with you? Seeing someone who is selfish or just really into themselves is completely annoying. Selfishness stinks.

That got me thinking about what makes up the majority of our mission to
(BE)TTER and I have arrived at this conclusion: We need to (BE)TTER to better others.

Its very interesting to me that Jesus really emphasized this point in John 7:37, 38. He was at a huge festival when He stood up and shouted, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”

Jesus’ promise was that if we believe in Him, not only will we have better life “water,” we can be a spring of life to others. Self-lessness will be one of our character traits. Out of the core of our being will just naturally flow solutions, peace, joy, provision, inspiration and love to co-workers, friends, family and anybody else who needs a pick-me-up.

If we don’t do it, who will? Let’s live as life-givers. Deal?
