“Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again.” 
(John 4:13)

The seat of the “thirst” within man lies too deep for the waters of this world to quench. The “thirst” of a man’s soul is a spiritual one, and that is why material things are unable to satisfy. Earth’s deepest well may be fathomed and drained, and the needy soul remains thirsty after all. Men and women may take their fill of pleasure, yet it will fail to satisfy. They may surround themselves with every comfort that wealth can provide, and the heart will be empty. They may court the honours of the world and climb to the highest pinnacle of human fame, but the plaudits of men will leave an aching void behind them. They may explore the whole realm of philosophy and science until they become as wise as Solomon; but like Israel’s king of old, they will discover that all under the sun is only “Vanity and vexation of spirit.” Over all the wells of this world must be written, “Whosoever drinketh of this water SHALL THIRST AGAIN.”
