One of the quickest ways to make friends is to carry water for them. The Proverb that encourages this is tucked away in Proverbs 20:5.
The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters,
but one who has insight draws them out.
We all get thirsty. When someone stands there with a refreshing splash of life, they care for us in simple but profound ways. Listening is a form of love and one has to listen for the purposes in another persons heart to really be a lover.
Water in the land of Jesus was and still is precious. Almost every drop is monitored and safeguarded. The purpose which God has placed in our hearts is a precious commodity as well. Thank God for those in our lives who are capable and insightful when it comes to helping us draw out that purpose.
