Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose their reward.
I got to Safeway at 8 AM. As I pulled up, I could already tell that I should have arrived earlier. There were hardly any spots left in the lot. I was lucky to park next to a man who had just finished unloading his groceries. He offered me his cart, and I took it thinking that I was doing him a favor – sure man, ask ME to push YOUR empty cart all the way back to the store. Then I saw some people carrying 2-3 handheld baskets at a time because they were not able to get a rolling cart. I realized this man had done me a huge favor and I didn’t realize it. He didn’t know me or anything about me, but he provided me with something I needed. For a guy about to buy 2 weeks’ worth of supplies, that rolling cart was like a cup of water.
May we look to provide others with the tangible things they need.
Because that is what Jesus asked us to do.
