Whoever gives one of these little ones just a cup of cold water to drink in the name of a disciple, most certainly I tell you he will in no way lose his reward."
- Matthew 10:42 (WEB)
Nothing, to me, is more refreshing than a cold glass of lemonade, in the hot summer. I recently read about a lemonade stand in Cincinnati, Ohio, that raised $148 for a children's hospital. That these children would care so much for other children, shows a great deal of love. But what is truly remarkable is that when this was posted on-line, the hospital received another $25,000 in donations, because many other people wanted to give! One lemonade stand made a great difference in peoples lives.
Jesus tells us that giving a cold glass of water to someone, in the name of a follower of His, can do great things. Simple things, like a glass of water, can effect and change someones life, for the better. Most of us are not called to do “great” things, when following Christ. Many times it just takes handing out a glass of water, or lemonade, to someone who is thirsting for life.
