Satisfying the Thirsty Soul

Read: John 4:1-15

The United States of America has spent millions of dollars to look for water on Mars. A decade ago, NASA sent two robots, Opportunity and Spirit, to Mars to see if water was present or had been present at one time. Why did the USA do this? Scientists who are examining the data sent back from those two space vehicles are trying to figure out if life ever existed on Mars. And for that to have happened, there had to be water. No water means no life.


Showing Gratitude

Read: Luke 17:11-19

Do we have a sense of gratitude towards people who have helped us or been there for us when we needed their help? It is very common to “use” the help and then forget about all the help received without showing any gratitude. When Jesus healed the ten lepers, only one person returned to thank Jesus for healing him. They were all lepers, outcasts in their society.


Desire to Dwell in God’s House

Read: Psalm 84

David always desired to dwell in God’s house though he was a king who lived in his palace. David said, “One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple” (Ps. 27:4). He cherished God’s presence and fellowship with God more than anything else in life.
