Water Cup Charm

“For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of cold water to drink because you belong to Christ will by no means lose his reward” (Matthew 9:41).  

“It is a long walk. And truly blessed is the one who offers us that cup of cold water along the way” (J. Oschwald, The Sword, June, 2014, unpublished).

Commercial copper plumbing end cap and fabricated copper handle.  The end cap has an inner diameter of 1/2 inch.

My father was a carpenter.  During the hot summer days of central Illinois he always took a 5 gallon Igloo thermos cooler filled with ice water with him to work.  Suspended by a wire to that thermos was a handled copper cup.  I have not forgotten the taste of water drunk from that cup.  In my mind, a water cup must be of copper.

This pendent is a reminder to serve.  No matter how trivial the service may appear.
