Peace of Mind

“How much are you willing to pay for peace of mind?”

This is the question posed by a company that makes what they are calling a “Smart Water Bottle.” It will test and then purify your water if such is deemed necessary. Sounds amazing, right?

They are charging more then $200 for each bottle.

The company knows that is expensive. But they also know that we must have water to live. It is absolutely necessary. We often take it for granted until we are without it. Some businesses in Texas and Florida were recently ridiculed because they were charging HUGE prices for bottled water in the aftermath of the hurricanes. Having access to pure water brings peace of mind.

Above all, what we really need is access to the water of life (Jon 4:14; Rev. 21:6; 22:1, 17). Such is only offered by and found in submission and obedience to Jesus Christ. We might have to make sacrifices. We many have to end certain relationships. We may have to engage in difficult conversations. We may have to take bold steps. But, then again, how much are you willing to pay for peace of mind? (cf. Phil. 4:7; 1 John 5:13).
