Why would a young college graduate, struggling to succeed in a new business, contribute 20 percent of his income to a project far removed from him both geographically and culturally? In the article “Making Clean Water from Mud,” you will discover the reason. Luke Wright, a gifted ceramics artist, sees his talent as a gift from God to be used for the benefit of others.
Many tribes and clans in the bush in the Central African Republic have only contaminated creeks or mud holes as sources for water, so Wright is contributing to an organization that exists to provide essential resources, including pure water, to thousands of Africans.
Wright understands, of course, that clean water is needed for physical health, but there is an even greater need for what the Bible calls “the water of life.” Jesus said that He is that water. You can gain spiritual health by accepting His offer of life eternal. It isn’t gained by giving away 20 percent–or even 100 percent–of your earnings. All you have to do is drink of that water of life, accepting by faith the offer of salvation made possible by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
For help in accepting the free gift of this water of life, contact the church where you received this magazine or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
