Why drink salt water or eat poison?


Picture Ogie Duque

What do you like to drink on a hot humid day when you have been drinking outside?

Coke, water, iced tea, beer?

Which of these is best? Which is best to quench our thirst?

Why do we not drink salt water?  Because it makes us thirstier!

When you are hungry, for what do you crave?

Ice cream? Pizza? Hamburger? Steak? Salad?

When you are hungry, you want something that fills you up, something that will not leave you hungry or that will not just stimulate your appetite for more (as I understand happens with sugar).

So what quenches your thirst for that “something more”? What fills you up when you are hungry for spiritual realities?

Jesus said,

“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. . . Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water” John 7:37
“I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me shall not hunger and whoever believes in me shall never thirst John” 6:35.

Let us live “the glory of a truly soul-satisfying life instead of sounding obsessed about the dangers of a life lived foolishly” (Gary Thomas)
