A Short Pilgrimage: I Thirst
I’m sure I looked both baffled and amused when he said he’d already drunk the water out of the bottle (he hoped we didn’t mind), and refilled it. I couldn’t figure out why on earth John had brought us a previously-used plastic bottle of what used to be spring water, so I examined the label for clues.
The experience made me wonder how often we see other people, situations, and/or things that we judge based on quick assumptions or outward appearances? How often do we assume there’s nothing deeper or holier than meets the eye?
