The villagers all applauded such a plan. The rainy season came and went, the ground began to become dry and cracked during the dry season and water was becoming quite scarce. The elders agreed that it was time to open up the tank where the villagers had been pouring their cups of water, so all the villagers could have a supply of water that they badly needed. In great anticipation, all of the villagers gathered around the tank with cups and bowls to recieve their portion of the water gathered. But with great alarm, when the elders opened up the tank, no water was found inside!
It turned out that not one villager had given a single cup of water as they had agreed. Each thinking that their single cup of water would surely not be missed. So the tank was empty, the village had no water during their dry season.
Wow. What a story of faithfulness ... or should I say unfaithfulness! It is so easy to think that nobody will notice our unfaithfulness. Skipping church or not fulfilling a promise we have made seems like no big deal or that no one will notice. Unfaithfulness not only hurts those who are dependent upon us (like the village in the story), but it also hurts us.
PROVERBS 3:3 "Let love and faithfulness never leave you."
This week I am thankful that we have a faithful God, who loves us and cares for us. He has a tank of water that never dries up, it is always available to us - it is an everlasting water that will cause us to thirst no more. Have you come to His tank today to get refreshed?
