No matter how busy things become… throughout the day we often find ourselves making time to reach for the kettle and make ourselves a cup of tea or coffee.
We stop what we are doing and pause because we have a thirst. It is a purposeful, intentional action.
How many times during your day do you pause to make a hot drink? Perhaps 4 or 5 - Maybe more?
This month we’d like to encourage you to use this time as a space for prayer. It takes on average 3 minutes for a kettle to boil, giving each of us at least 12-15 minutes of prayer time every day.
These moments provide a great opportunity to reflect upon the way Jesus used daily activities to transform lives. We can see this clearly during his conversation with the Samarian women at the well. (John 4:1-42)
Jesus knew the importance of the smallest of moments..
‘Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.’ (John 4:13-14) NIV®
