"Please Give Me A Drink"


"I can do this in my own." "I don't need anyone else's help."
It can be humbling to ask someone for help in our life but so very necessary. Look at the example of Jesus in this passage.

"...and Jesus, tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well about noontime. Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.” John 4:6-7

Did you catch that? Jesus, fully God, yet fully man who could have gotten His own drink of water, but didn't. Instead He asked for help.
What's amazing is that because He reached out for help, ministry happened. He was able to minister to this lady like He wouldn't have otherwise. Read thru the rest of chapter 4 and you will see what I mean.

It was Abraham Lincoln that said, "Whatever you are, be a good one."

Just don't forget you can't do it alone. You may rob someone else of a ministry opportunity to serve and love you as they grow in their own recovery.

Have a blessed day!
