John 4:13–14

"Jesus replied, 'Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.'"


How true is verse 14 in your life? Has the water of life really taken away your thirst? If not, why not? Are you coming to the right well often enough? Are you drinking deeply enough, long enough?.'

Psalm 103:13–14

"The LORD is like a father to his children,
  tender and compassionate to those who fear him.
For he knows how weak we are;
  he remembers we are only dust"

How comforting it is to know that God understands how weak we are! He is not an abusive father who demands more than we can give. No, this Father is tender and compassionate. He understands and allows for our weakness, frailty, and constant failure. This is a Father to be trusted and loved back.
