On a daily basis we use 10 billion tons of freshwater worldwide. But over 1 billion people in developing countries do not have access to safe drinking water. According to WHO 80% of all diseases in the developing world are water related. By 2025, the UN estimates that 30% of the world’s population residing in 50 countries will face water shortages. Here in the US we have an abundance of non-water drinks that use water as a ingredient, in production, in the manufacturing of the bottle, etc.
PRAY: Each day of this week, read this Bible verse as a family and add any special intentions.
“Then Jesus sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.” -Mark 9:35
ACT: Try to limit yourself to only drinking water (& milk). Donate any money that would normally have been spent on coffee, pop, juice, creamer, etc. this week.
