Scripture: Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:13-14)
Prayer: Heavenly Father, satisfy my soul’s thirst. Only you can fill my needs, forgive me when I settle for imperfect substitutes.
Reflection: Why do we seek fulfillment from the things of this world? The world’s promises are attractive, but the delivery is empty. The rewards are instant, but the effects are temporary. The consequences seem non-existent, but the guilt is overwhelming. The gratification is complete, but only the Father knows what we truly need.
