E-Cheer: Need a Drink?

You have a good idea that you're over the hill when you try to
straighten the wrinkles in your socks and discover you aren't
wearing any.

I suppose you've noticed that no two of us are exactly alike. We
do have different likes and dislikes in food, music, entertainment,
churches, cars, and the list goes on. For example, Betty loves
things like mushrooms and olives -- I can't tolerate either one.

It is when we belittle others for their preferences that we create
trouble. If Betty prefers mushrooms, I don't have to eat them, so
what is the problem? However, we do tend to look down on
others when it comes to selection of churches. Our church is the
only correct one, right? "Why in the world do Tim & Brenda go
to that church" -- have you ever heard something like that?

It's unfortunate that churches seem to attract people of similar
social strata, but it does happen. That's one reason why people
look down their spiritual noses at others. That is totally out of
line with Jesus' teachings. All in the body of Christ are equal at
the foot of the cross, so none of us has any reason to be haughty.

Jesus was kind to the woman at the well. Every day we meet
people who are at the well of life in need of help. What is our
response -- look down on them or help them? That's when the
words of this old song should come to mind, "Be like Jesus this
my song -- In the home and in the throng; Be like Jesus all day
long! I would be like Jesus."

In John 4:13 & 14 (nlt) we have this account at the well, "Jesus
replied, 'People soon become thirsty again after drinking this
water. But the water I give them takes away thirst altogether. It
becomes a perpetual spring within them, giving them eternal
life'." Now let's find people needing a drink.





If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
