Chug! Chug! Chug!
By Jim Mitchell
After playing golf in the Texas summer heat one Saturday, I remember my dad and I drinking so much iced tea so quickly that the waitress brought us each a pitcher full so she didn’t have to make so many trips.
She only had to refill the pitchers twice.
Like a soothing beverage on a scratchy throat, God’s love and mercy flows freely to you and to me. And the best news of all? Unlimited refills!
Whether your thirst right now is life-induced or self-inflicted makes no difference. Quit sipping God’s mercy. Throw your head back and chug.
And don’t be chintzy either. Your spouse craves mercy, too. Spill it, splash it, and share it. There’s more where that came from.
“Chug! Chug! Chug!”
The good stuff: The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)
Action points: Take a fresh drink again right now of God’s kindness toward you. It will hydrate your life and your marriage.
