Seven Days of Gratitude: Day 3

The Seven Days of Gratitude are an annual tradition and gratitude challenge for us at MW. We have seven days leading up to Thanksgiving (U.S.) where we reflect on different themes that help us reflect on the things we can be grateful for. Some are obvious and some are a bit more random. I hope you join us on this journey of reflecting on gratitude. You can journal it or share with us on social media @modernwitnesses_ on Instagram. Tag us or do #SevenDaysofGratitude. As always, we are grateful to God for you and everything you are doing to reflect His light.

Our day 3 theme is:

clean water.

I have seen crazy conditions in housing in NYC. It is part of my job. It never ceases to surprise me, the fact that there are still so many people who do not have clean water to drink and to shower with. (Read more about clean water access in the USA here). It breaks my heart. This always reminds me how grateful I am to have clean water to drink. And I will say that even with the flaws in our system, we also know that we have it better than many in other countries, where people gather water in what looks like white gasoline plastic bins and other vessels.

People suffer from illness and bacterial infections– the fight for clean water is real. So, if you are in a place where you are fortunate enough to have a clean cup of water, that is something to be grateful for.

It is a simple and basic necessity. When you have clean water, you want to share it. Jesus compared Himself and truth to water that satisfies.

If you are interested in supporting clean water access around the world, Charity Water and ADRA have ways in which you can contribute.

“But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” John 4:14

As you reflect on water, tell us, how do you like your water? I once heard Aaron McManus say he wanted Essentia to sponsor their Battle Ready podcast recordings because it is his favorite. Do you have a favorite? Is there something you love to do with water? A bubble bath, perhaps? Let us know!
