The Bible reveals that man is thirsty. This is why he continually seeks countless things to satisfy himself, such as knowledge, diplomas, careers, money, sports, music, entertainment, parties, relationships, etc.
Although he drinks this “water,” he is not truly, lastingly satisfied but rather is left empty, dry, and thirsty. Thus, he must seek more “water,” proving that he was left unsatisfied and is still thirsty. Jesus’ words explain man’s experience: “Everyone who drinks of this water shall thirst again” (John 4:13). How then can our thirst be quenched?
