<What?! My landlord is dying of thirst>


Lately, my feelings have been very complicated, always thinking about the nature of human hearts. My friend Noah is sick again; after recovering from gastroenteritis, he caught the flu. I went out to buy some mandarin oranges, hoping they would soothe his throat. One morning, when I walked into the kitchen, I couldn't believe my eyes....

Our 85-year-old landlady was sneakily picking the oranges I had bought. She muttered to herself, "Taking a few won't be noticed, right?" Little did she know that I was right behind her, ready to record her behavior with my phone. As she looked up and turned around, she got a big shock and said to me, "These oranges you bought are so beautiful. Taking a few is totally fine, right? Don't be too stingy in life!" At that moment, I was speechless, staring at her with sharp eyes. Back in my room, I felt a deep sense of confusion. If Granny had asked us first, we would have willingly given her some. Why did she choose to steal from us? She already owned multiple valuable properties, but why still take things from us? These oranges were meant for healing, and could she really not afford to buy them? I closed my eyes and prayed to God about all this, and I thought of Isaiah 55:1, which says, "Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost."

We can't find complete satisfaction in the things we acquire in this lifetime. Only the precious words of Jesus can quench the thirst and desires in our hearts.

Thanks for watching. Your kind support is my motivation to continue delivering

God's love.
