The Oasis.

Two men were crawling through a desert, dying of thirst. One man managed to get to his feet, and stumbled over a small rise. To his utter surprise he found an oasis of cool, fresh water. He fell into the water, drank to his heart’s content, and ran back to tell his dying friend the good news.

He said, “There’s an oasis of water over that rise. Come with me, drink, and you will live!” The dying man looked up, and said through parched lips, “You liar! I don’t believe the water is there…and you are a naïve fool to believe it. Don’t try to push your so-called water down my throat.

“I have proof that you are deceived—that hill you stumbled over is millions of years old. Besides, it’s my life, and I choose to stay here and die, you narrow-minded fool!”

Jesus said, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water” (John 7:37,38).

Isaiah 55:1 “Ho! tEveryone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price.

    The friend said, “but what about the sign that says ‘warning, poisonous water, do not drink ?”. But there was no reply because the man had already died from the poison.

    Soon the friend was rescued by a helicopter, and he was thankful for his education, and that he hadn’t fallen for superstitions human beliefs invented despite abundant evidence to the contrary.
