Just a touch of water please….

from the inside out

God: breaks it down real simple….

Mark 9:41 (KJV) “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.”

Scripture is filled with the ways in which we can get extra blessings from the hands of God; please note I said “extra”; He blesses us without us turning cartwheels to receive, but as He told Cornelius, his alms giving had gained the attention of heaven so did the unusual for him in the book of Acts 10 (take a look sometime).

But there are times when our actions of giving when done with the right motives reach before the throne of God and He sits up and pay attention; in this reading today we see something so simple that will also gain attention in the heavenly realm: giving to someone who bears the name of Christ.

And not just any great and big gift, just a cup of water; but a cup of water given with the right motive and a pure heart. Jesus will pay attention and your reward will be sure. Not saying that you did it to be rewarded, but He pays attention nevertheless.

Isn’t it awesome that we have a rewarding God who pays us back when we least expect it when we are altruistic in our action. To Him only be the glory…
