One of the most underappreciated aspects of the Christian life is ordinary faithfulness.
In Mark 9, Jesus teaches His disciples, "For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ will by no means lose his reward" (v.41).
Giving someone a cup of water seems so small and insignificant. With all the unbelief and evil that we see around us, how can something so frivolous make any kind of real impact? I'm sure the person who provides the water doesn't feel like they are doing anything of significance. However, Jesus teaches that even the small act of kindness is meaningful and will not be forgotten by our heavenly Father.
Have you ever been in a situation where your losses were great, encouragement was hard to come by, and hope was fading? Did the Lord send along someone to give you a "cup of cold water" to refresh your soul? What was that "cup of cold water" for you? Also, feel free to share how God led you to be the one delivering that "cup of cold water" in His name to someone else!
