As I read the verses for today and the devotional entry, I was getting pretty fired up about the importance of clean drinking water. There are places around the world, and even in the U.S., in which it is arduous to obtain safe drinking water. I feel outraged when I hear about policies that prohibit offering someone a drink of water while they are waiting in line to vote. My righteous indignation was in full bloom!
And then I read the last part of today’s entry about the Israelistes missing out on God’s invitation to be filled with life and gratitude. Oops. I was so busy getting fired up that I missed the invitation, too! Enders then asks us how we respond to invitations to REST and be filled on our spiritual journey. I think I need a change of focus–more on gratitude.
