- How long do you think it would take to fill one of those water containers from the tiny stream? How long would it take to get water for 1825 people?
- Have you ever lifted 40 pounds? How far do you think you could carry 40 pounds of water? Does that seem like a lot of work to you, just for dirty water?
- Would you complain about that kind of job if you had to do it every day, twice a day?
- In Matthew 23:1-4 Jesus speaks metaphorically about heavy, cumbersome loads, but carrying water is a very real, literal load. How do you think Jesus would feel about the burden of carrying water and our ability to help with the problem?
