Scripture Discussion and Application
When is the last time you had a drink of water?
Today I want to start by talking a little about the work that women do in this world to bring water into their homes, in parts of the world where water must be carried by hand. This particular work has also been done by men, but today, this job is chiefly done by women and girls.
In Egypt, 30% of the women walk over an hour a day to bring water back to their homes. In some parts of Africa, women and children spend eight hours a day collecting water. The women of India spend 150 million work days every day bringing water back to their homes. (Source)
