"Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out" (Proverbs 20:5).
Today's Morsel: One of the things I like about book signing at General Conference each year, is I get to sit and listen to many of the elders relate their past Pentecostal experiences, and it allows me the opportunity to ask them questions. Solomon said that counsel in the heart of man is like deep water. Some folks have a wealth of knowledge that we may need to hear. But if we are not willing to sit with patience, talk with them, ask them questions, and wait for them to impart it to us, we may miss out on some very important information and instructions that could help us in our life, ministry, and keep us on the right road to salvation. The Bible says of Jesus, "And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him. And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions" (Luke 2:45-46). The sweetest and freshest water is always at the bottom of the well.
Sing: Drinking at the springs of living water, happy now am I, my soul they satisfy; Drinking at the springs of living water, , O wonderful and bountiful supply.
Thought for Today: "The sweetest and freshest water is at the bottom of the well" (Parker).
