What is it about flying that makes the beverage service so refreshing?

When we lived in Dallas we were regularly picking up guests from the airport. It was about a thirty minute commute. At some point I started bringing cold water, Coke, or Gatorade with me. I’d park, go find my guest, help them get their luggage to the car, and then offer them something to drink. I figured if it feels that good on the plane–perhaps it feels that good on the ride home.

So simple. So refreshing.

Can we be “cup of cold water after a long flight” kind of people? What would that look like?

If someone says, “Thank you, you’re a breath of fresh air.” You’re hitting it. Even if they don’t say it–if you can make them feel it then you’re accomplishing more than you realize. Even if they don’t feel it–your hospitable mindset is a very powerful contributor to your own growth. Keep it up.

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

John 4:13-14
