Water is one of the most important things on earth. Without water, there is no life. We can only survive for a few days without a source of water. It is no wonder that the possibility of a drought is a cause for great concern. Wouldn’t it be marvellous to find a source of water that never runs out?

One of the best ways to know a person is to visit their home. This is because a person’s home is a place where he or she can be expressed. If a home is neat and clean then we know that a neat and clean person lives there. If a home is beautifully decorated then we know that the person who lives there appreciates beauty.

Have you ever wondered if God can be contacted? To many of us God is abstract and far away. Even the Bible confirms that God dwells in unapproachable light (1 Timothy 6:16
). Yet the Bible also tells us that we, as human beings, can contact and receive God and become His children (John 1:12
). How can we reconcile this apparent paradox?
