A Cup of Cold Water

Matthew 10:42 (ESV) And whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.”

A year or so ago when reading this verse I realized something very interesting.  This means slightly different than what I’ve always been taught and that most people assume.  This is especially obvious when you compare the verse in other locations.

Do you see what caught my attention?

  1. I’ve always been taught that if you give someone (anyone?) a cup of cold water in His Name, then you will not lose your reward. What jumped out at me was the :”because he is My disciple.”
    Is that what jumped out at you, BW?

    You are correct that is what caught my attention. It was especially interesting when I cross referenced it and found the same idea repeatedly in the Scriptures.
