Next to the importance of Air to our existance Water is necessary for life and health. Considering that most of the body consists of water we must be concerned with both the quantity and quality of the water we drink.

Many experts say we need a minimum of 64 ounces of water each day to promote health and wellness. Water helps maintain our temperature, helps to remove toxins from the body, keeps our skin (the largest organ of our body) hydrated and healthy, helps with circulation and even staves off hunger. In fact, sometimes when we feel hungry it is simply because we are dehydrated and a glass of water or two may be all we need to feel full again!

The quality of water is also important. I use a water cooler with purified water both in my home and office. Some tap water may have too much clorine or fluride to be considered healthy! Some experts say the only pure water is distilled water but it is often hard to find and a bit costly. Some chose to install water filters and that may be a good option or a waste of money depending on the filter used. I'm told that reverse osmosis filters are the best and can be installed in a main water feed to provide pure water to drink and wash with.

The Bible speaks a lot about water. It says that there was a river in the Garden of Eden that promoted life all around it. We see as we study history and cultures that communities often form mostly around a body of water due to the importance of this wonderful substance. More items are transported by water than any other means! In Psalms 46 it says, " There is a river, whos streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.

Hence, the importance of H20 in our lives. It's importance can't be minimized! Next to air, it is the most necessary substance on earth and we must protect it and drink it daily for our lives here on earth depend upon it.
