How Blessed Are You?

Has God blessed you? If you have the sight to read this, He has. If you have a computer to read this on, He has. If you know Him, He has.


Share the well, share with your brother
Share the well my friend
It takes a deeper well to love one another
Share the well my friend

Do you think the water knows
Flowing down the mountain thaw
Finally to find repose
For any soul who cares to draw
Some kindred keepers of this Earth
On their way to join the flow
Are cast aside and left to thirst
Tell me now it is not so

Share the well, share with your brother
Share the well my friend
It takes a deeper well to love one another
Share the well my friend

All God's creatures share the water hole
The blessed day the monsoon comes
And in His image we are woven
Every likeness every one
From Kashmir to Karala
Under every banyan tree
Mothers for their children cry
With empty jar and bended knee

Share the well, share with your brother
Share the well my friend
It takes a deeper well to love one another
Share the well my friend

You know I've heard good people say
There's nothing I can do
That's half a world away
Well maybe you've got money
Maybe you've got time
Maybe you've got the Living Well
That ain't ever running dry

Share the well, share with your brother
Share the well my friend
It takes a deeper well to love one another
Share the well my friend

-Caedmon's Call
"Share The Well"




Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.
Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share,
storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed.
O, Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, ...
- 1Timothy 6:17-20


This afternoon our church's college group had a planning session regarding World Vision's Thirty Hour Famine , which the youth group is going to participate in. Our church has done it for the past few years; this year the college group is heading it up.

Did you know that 852 million people worldwide are malnourished, 153 million being under the age of 5? Or, did you know that the price tag for providing food, clean water and basic health care each year for the world is equal to what the U.S. spends on ice cream annually ($20 billion)?
Did you know that 8% of the world owns a car? Are you one of them? Did you know that the U.S. (6% of the world) consumes 40% of the world's products?

Now that you know, how are you going to steward the wealth with which God has blessed you?
Will you help build a well? Will you lead others to The Living Well?
