What Well Do You Drink From?


A year and a Half ago Im retired after 35 years During that course of time I developed several good relationships with co-workers that became friendships.

 Back in the 80’s as a relatively young man I had energy to spare, yet as time rolled on I slowed down,


When energy drinks came on the market it became the quest of my friend Dennis and I to find an elusive orange drink offered by a certain manufacturer. They became hard to find but when we did find them it was like an oasis in the dessert.  


One day Dennis and I we stopped by convenient store and decided to try an off brand drink with an odd name. Within minutes of our first sip we both were tormented with headaches. 


Years later we still talk about that day…Let’s be honest it seems that we all have this inherent drive to find something that quenches a thirst or eternal longing, a restlessness if you will.  


The same is true a a women that Jesus met….she was drawing water from an historic well. She too had this eternal longing that the water from that was was un able to quench. Let’s listen in on this story as told in the gospel of John chapter 4.

 

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst.


There are many wells in this world that we drink from and Im not talking about a physical water, things like social media, television and social causes , news, politics, Hollywood, NY best sellers, that market themselves as sources that quench our thirst but are they.




There is much more to this story but for today think about this:


St Augustine wrote : You oh lord have made us for yourself and our hearts will not rest until they rest in thee. We are restless people looking to have the thirst in our souls quenched…so let me ask you…What Well Do You Drink from? The one that gives you life or a well that gives you a really bad headache or worst yet a soul that remains unquenched?


This is Steve and until we meet again Press On!
