A cup of cold water

           Whoever gives even a cup of cold water
           to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple—
           truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.

                           —Matthew 10.42

We forget how thirsty we all are
for hope and gratitude.
Don’t pass up an opportunity today
to offer a cup to one of the little ones
(who of course are angels in disguise):
to encourage, to appreciate, to give thanks
to the one checking your groceries,
or delivering your mail,
or doing their best to be a decent person.
Notice how offering a cup of grace
quenches your own longing, too.
God is thirsty for our love for each other
and every little cup is a delight
that satisfies us all.
