Do you Recognize your Water Bottle?

Most of us have perceived images of what a water bottle looks like; therefore, when water is presented in a different container we tend to not recognize it for what is in the container.
The same can be true for life giving people in our lives. We have an expectation/perception of what they will look like and fail to recognize what is contained within them. How many times do we keep people who are life giving out of our lives just because they do not meet our perceived expectation on the outside?
Perhaps we need to adjust our expectations when looking for emotional and spiritual water. It does not always come from the source we perceived it would come from.
” Like a cool drink of water when you’re worn out and weary
is a letter from a long-lost friend. ” Proverbs 25:25(MSG)
