WATER, in eternal flow
from past to future, earth to sky,
you bring me beauty,
clense, renew, sustain my life
. . . and I?
I bring you but enduring thanks
awash with firm intent
to honor and respect,
not profane, neglect,
your call to purity.

Give thanks to God for water. Share your thoughts.
For truly I tell you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of Christ will by no means lose the reward.
