Friday, October 14 — Psalm 119:9–16
2 Samuel 5:17–6:23; John 7:14–24
My people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living water, and dug out cisterns for themselves, cracked cisterns that can hold no water. Jeremiah 2:13
The woman said to him, “Sir, you have no bucket, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water?” John 4:11
Like the woman at the well, we seldom realize that our souls are utterly dry, deprived of your living water, so wallowed in the sins that squeeze your breath from our mortal beings, cisterns become normal. Purge us, Lord, and fill us with your living water! Amen.
