Don’t Stay Thirsty, My Friends

January 22, 2018

From 3 days ago:  The red light was on. The humidifier needed water. As I was taking care of it, an old song floated through me: “Fill my cup, Lord…I lift it up, Lord…come and quench this thirsting of my soul.”

In a subtle way, that classic chorus reminds you and me of a responsibility we have.

Its second phrase is a call to action: I lift it up, Lord.

I can be in the kitchen, be thirsty, know that there’s a variety of beverages in the refrigerator and an even greater assortment of glasses in the cabinet, and stay thirsty.

Connecting a glass with a beverage and then drinking the contents are the only ways to quench my thirst.

True for our spirits as well.

We can be reading and studying The Bible, be in a small group, participating in a worship service, and stay thirsty.

Instead, “Fill my cup, Lord…I lift it up, Lord…come and quench this thirsting of my soul.” 

How are you lifting up the cup of your very self to our Lord today?

Because in this instance, “Stay thirsty, my friends” is not good advice.
