Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you that have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
THOUGHTS TO PONDER
If you were thirsty and hungry, what could you find to eat or drink in this picture?
The food and drink mentioned in the passage are free. How is that different from the way you get food?
We all know what it feels like to be away from home and realize that a drink or a snack sounds really good. But we also know that if we don’t have money, we cannot just walk into a store and take it off the shelf.
If a friend is nearby, however, he or she might have a drink or a snack to share. That’s a big relief, especially if you just finished playing a soccer game or you are at the beach and the hot sun is shining down on you.
God is the best kind of friend because he tells us to come and eat and drink freely. That means that somehow he paid the price for all that we need. Besides real food and water, what do you think this passage might be referring to? What does God give us freely that we don’t have the ability to get for ourselves?
And how do you think he paid the price?
