Here are several compelling choices: do we make our life like the Dead Sea, which cannot support life (fish or animal), or make it a fountain of blessings that enhances life in all forms? Do we allow our blessings to flow into others or have we bottled them up for our own use (the Dead Sea has no outlet to the ocean). And, are we simply a tourist attraction to be visited and forgotten, or do we contribute something meaningful and lasting to the lives of others?
He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water.
Amplified Bible Classic Edition
The water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.
The answer to these questions may be found in our relationship to Christ.
